Parsi Gara

Also known as Chinese Embroidery. The Parsi community, original inhabitants of Persia, who migrated to India long back are known for their rich cultural heritage. Parsi Gara work is a symbol of embroidered work at the helm of beauty of its kind. It is an intricate embroidered pattern and is famously known as ‘Painting in thread’. It is considered that buying a Gara is like purchasing a piece of jewellery – such is its value and worth. Its tasteful motifs, its jaal work, its border and pallu work are all a vision to behold. It’s rightly said that ‘The Parsi Gara’ in a nutshell, is three things. Indian embroidery with a Persian heritage and a Chinese origin.

The art of attaching beads & other decorative items like pearls or sequins by stringing them with a thread or thin wire to cloth is known as beadwork embroidery.
