Wearing clothing with zardosi embroidery used to be exclusively for royals, but not anymore. Now fine and stylish garments are decorated with fine and precious zardosi work.
These large zardosi patches are recycled from a vintage bridal sarees. This zardosi work is about 25 to 30 years old and the patches has a previous live. Therefore it is possible these some stone or beads are missing, adding more character to these precious fabrics.
The large patches can be used in 1 part or can be cut in parts (depending on the design and pattern of each patch) to embellish any item or for your own sewing project.
The zardosi pattern will be cut out of the red carrying fabric and the applied to the item you like to decorate. This way most of the red carrying fabric will disappear.
