Kasuti Yoke and Border - Finished

Hi friends,

As I have promised in my last post I am here to show the kasuti embroidery yoke and border.  This time I have embroider this in small pieces of fabric so that it can be attached to the main piece.  I have got the kasuti embroidery net from Raja thread stores in chennai but the no of holes per inch is larger than the one which I had earlier.  That's why stitches are somewhat longer.  But it gives perfect look like before.  

Fabric used : Black color silk cotton
Thread used: Anchor embroidery thread
No. of strands: 3
Design taken from: Mridulas school of embroidery - kasuti applications book

Yoke

Border



I have just placed the embroidered pieces on top of the fabric just for an idea how it can be attached to the fabric.

Two years back I have embroidered the same design but with different border.  You can view that piece here.

If any of you is interested in buying this piece do mail me at isseelan@yahoo.com.

  1. Lovely work Shami. I love kasuti and I had traced a lot of designs on a black saree but then I gave it up halfway as it was very tiresome to work on a black background. Wonderful precision in your work.
    Have a lovely weekend.
