India is famous for its rich arts and crafts. Indian embroidery secures a special place in the Indian culture. There are dozens of embroidery styles that are inspired by different states of India. Each comes with its own history and background.
Embroidery is done on various fabrics such as cotton, silk, satin, linen, crepe and velvet. Some of the most popular types of hand embroidery are Zardozi, Phulkari, Aari, Chikankari, Kantha, and Gota.
Among the many educational institutes, Hamstech Institute of Creative Education, based in Hyderabad, has been staying ahead in imparting creative education for the past 2 decades. At Hamstech, every fashion design student learns from basic to complex techniques of hand embroidery. This is eventually displayed on various garments in the Hamstech Fashion Show.
