Gold Cloths of Sumatra


Phulkari is a very refined embroidery work of Punjab and Haryana. It has more emotional social and cultural value which is very rare. Embroidered with silk thread on cotton base, phulkari is a shawl made by the mother for her young daughter-in-law. Phulkari literally means floral work and is also called Bagh, which literally means a garden.
