25/9 Embroidery from Kashmir

So as I walked through various stalls at Dilli Haat, I saw various art forms discussed before at crafts museum. I saw stalls with Madhubani paintings for sale, then there were pattachitra paintings, and many more. This one thing I saw and it grabbed my attention and also its something new. This is Kashmiri Embroidery.

Kashmiri embroidery is of 3 types- Crewel, Sozni, Gold and silver embroidery(tilla). This kind of embroidery is seen on various shawls, jackets, sarees, etc. Woollen and silk thread are used for it.
