Embroidery

Embroidery


The embroideries of Pakistan are among the richest in South Asia. Traditional costumes, accessories and animal adornments embroidered by women for their families are still in use. Although the techniques, design elements and uses may be in common, many are peculiar to individual communities and distinguishable by their style, motifs and colour. Embroidery, like clothing, functions as a non-verbal form of communication and motifs, colour and composition signify an individual's group identity and occupation and, very often, social status.
