Kashidakari is the Persian name for a type of needlework.[1] This art prospered in mainland India for centuries and the art was passed down countless generations with each era bringing about subtle change in motifs and stitch patterns.[2] In current context it refers to any exotic folk embroidery or embellishment on fabric.
