‘Aari’ embroidery, also known as crewel work, is a speciality of Kashmiri artisans. Created in fine, concentric rings of chain stitch using a long hooked needle called the crevel, it is a form of very fine embroidery that involves elaborate and intricate floral motifs favoured by the royals.
Chain stitch embroidery called the ‘Aarikam’ uses a special crooked head needle, to hold the staple yarn in and draw it into a line on the fabric through numerous consistent pricks. Each previous loop is held by the subsequent one, to make a chain effect. Pamposh (lotus), Sosan (Iris), Dachh (vine), Sumbal and Yambarzal (hyacinth and narcissus), Dainposh (pomegranate) are some of the most commonly used motifs.
