French knot embroidery

Embroidery in black blouse with tracing paper

Here’s a beautifully hand crafted black blouse for an elegant soft silk saree in red and silver.  We have used a variety of materials and stitches to make it bright and vibrant. Small leaves are done with silver and antique gold saadhi with a lavangam stitch for the mid vein. The long bigger leaves are done with lavangam stitch and cut Dana beads for the mid vein. The small cute flowers are made with red base and saadhi petals. The gaps in between these tiny leaves and flowers are filled with very small fitting Kundan stones and a few pearl bead flowers to give fine details. The choice of materials and colours play an important part in bringing out the best.
