Zardozi Resham Embroidered Wall Hanging

Zardozi Resham Embroidered Wall Hanging. A stunning piece of handcrafted opulence, this exquisite wall hanging is indeed a lovely wall accessory. Zardozi is a form of embroidery that was brought to India from Persia by the Mughals. Its literal translation, “zar” meaning gold and “dozi” meaning embroidery, refers to the process of using metallic-bound threads to sew embellishment on to various fabrics. Creating this piece of intricate craft is a long drawn process. Initially, the design is drawn on a tracing sheet with a fabric placed under it and holes are made along the traced pattern using a needle. The design imprinted fabric is tightly stretched over a wooden frame to give the cloth a uniform tension. The artisans sit around this frame and use a crochet-like needle that is fixed to a wooden stick called “Ari” to carry out the embroidery. In most cases, the raw material to make original Zardozi threads is an alloy of gold and silver. This delicate alloy wire is made by melting ingots that are pressed through perforated steel sheets.

Zardozi / Resham Embroidery

Zardozi comes from the Persian word, "Zar" means gold and "dozi" means work. Zardozi embroidery is a type of metal embroidery, which was once used to embellish the attire of Kings and royals in Persia and later introduced to India. It was also used to adorn walls of the royal tents, scabbards, wall hangings and the paraphernalia of regal elephants and horses. Zardozi embroidery work involves making elaborate designs, using gold and silver threads along with studded pearls and precious stones. Initially, the embroidery was done with pure silver wires and real gold leaves. However, today, craftsmen make use of a combination of copper wire, with a golden or silver polish, and a silk thread.
