Hand embroidery designs in India have been influenced by different cultures throughout the centuries. Aari work can be traced right back to the 12th century during the reign of the Mughals. The Mughals popularized floral motifs through their art and architecture. Aari embroidery therefore became a popular craft and in today’s day, is one of the most popular crafts in India. We at Purple Panchi are inspired by the craft of aari work and embrace it through our aari embroidery suits. 

Aari embroidery or hand embroidery is a tedious skill that requires a steady hand. This craft also gives the opportunity of employment to many artisans. Artisans are the steady hands behind a completed aari embroidery suit. This advanced stichting procedure is cherished by many in the fashion industry. Aari work is done by stretching the fabric tightly over a wooden frame to create intricate embroidery designs. Aari work enhances the essence of hand embroidery. This handcrafted technique uses various kinds of threads, beads and stones to add richness to the embroidery. Aari embroidery suits come in various fabrics such as velvet, silk, cotton, chanderi, chanderi silks, etc.
