Embroidery    
     

Embroidery is the art or handicraft of decorating fabric or other materials with needle and thread or yarn. Embroidery may also incorporate other materials such as metal strips, pearls, quills and sequins.

Here at Charaka we had incorporated hand embroidery exclusively for our women's clothing range. However, recently we have started hand embroidery for some of our men's range as well, like Sherwani. Some garments are just plain hand embroidered and some are hand embroidered on top of block print designs. Currently we are using basic stitches like chain stitch, buttonhole, running stitch, satin stitch, cross stitch, herring bone stitch.
