Aari Embroidery

Aari embroidery is done by the Mochi, or cobbler community. It is a minute chain stitch done by a hook which is an adaptation of the cobbler's awl. This is a very delicate and floral style of embroidery, influenced by Moghul designs. By using subtle gradations of colour the figures and motifs in the designs can be highly representational.
