Aari embroidery

Aari embroidery is one of the popular embroidery styles in India.Silk threads and zari are used.It's done using a big slate frame (kind of) and the hook used is handmade.I'll post pictures soon. Cutwork,openwork,applique,filling stitches can be done with the same hook.Also sequins,mirrors,beads can be fixed too.

I'm posting images of my aari embroidery samplers which I'd worked long time back.
