Types of detailing on Savi clothes

By now, you have become accustomed to basking in the beauty of Savi Kurtas, Savi dresses, and more.

You've also worn and loved our clothes in the past. But have you ever given much thought to the detailing on Savi ethnic wear?

It's okay if you haven't, dear Savi Women. Because this blog is dedicated to doing exactly that and paying a much-needed homage to our hard-working artisans who use skill and care in crafting the women's apparel we offer.

Let's see which little adornments make a big difference in Savi clothing.

1. ZARI EMBROIDERY

Zari is a style of embroidery that came to India from central Asia in the 12th century. 'Zari' refers to the metal thread woven into or embroidered onto many fabrics.

2. SEQUIN WORK

Sequins are small pieces of shiny ornamental discs made from plastic or colored metal foil. They are sewn onto the clothes to add an inimitable shine to them.

3. MIRROR WORK

Mirror work or 'shisha' is an embroidery tradition in which small mirror pieces are sown onto the fabric. Just as you'd expect, they add a unique edge to any garment and reflect your undeniable beauty.

4. GOTA DETAILING

The Gota work originated in Rajasthan and uses the applique technique. Small pieces of Zari ribbon with their edges sewed down are applied onto the fabric, which results in elaborate patterns.

5. RESHAM EMBROIDERY

This type of embroidery is done with colourful silk threads that achieve elaborate floral, paisley, and other decorative patterns. Resham threads were originally a part of Chinese art but they have become commonplace around the world now.
