Pakko Embroidery

Pakko embroidery is done by the Sodha, Rajput & Megwar communities. Pakko literally means solid. The designs and motifs are very similar to Aahir, but slightly more geometric. The outline is done with a square chain stitch, but the filling is a dense variation of buttonhole stitch, which gives a raised appearance. Mirrors are used frequently. Like Aahir, the original design is drawn freehand and then transferred to the cloth by a stencil.
