Handwork Sarees

Certain types of stitches and embroideries are in practice since ancient times in India and there were no machines then nor do the massive production capabilities manufacture posses these days, so all the work was done by hand. It was tedious yet honourable. Mostly hand work was done by housewives as they had more free time and then passed on from mother to daughters thus passing on the tradition along with the craft. There are much historic evidence of royalties keeping an armada of handwork craftsmen for their decorative royal garments such was the glory of hand work which is still very present.
