Winter Fashion ft. Kashmiri Embroidery

The time-honored craft of Kashmiri embroidery has made its name throughout the world. With intricate details and world-class craftsmanship to vouch for the beauty of this art, a new season awaits with promising new trends executed by the skilled artisans of the valley, yet again singing hymns of praise of the valley that is undoubtedly a treasure trove of heritage and fashion.

Being a valley that is mostly covered in snow and on the brighter days still sees the chilly breeze sing songs of beauty, Kashmiri fashion is rendered to withstand the cold and harsh temperatures. The ladies of the valley usually clad themselves in thick coats, shawls, and pherans to keep warm but also remain close to their culture. Kashmiri embroidery is often seen as a staple in all these pieces, quietly adding to the beauty of the outfits and giving them a dose of majesty.


Kashmiri embroidery has a very rich history and is steeped in tradition. The art of embellishment on fabrics with intricate designs and patterns dates back to the Mughal court in India when gorgeous Kashmiri designs were created by local artists. Evolving over time, these intricate patterns now feature prominently on many traditional wear pieces from Kashmir—from dresses to salwar suits to fusion outfits, each designed with a delightful twist.

Kashmiri embroidery is an art form that uses rich and intricate handwork. The finest materials are used to create these works of needlework, which are then painstakingly stitched onto various garments and accessories. The style of needlework that was most popular during this time was called "Kashmiri" or "Mughal", depending on whether you were looking at it from inside or outside India! This type of embroidery was characterized by geometric shapes within intricate designs.

The use of gold and silver threads has been a common feature in Kashmiri embroidery since its inception. This combination gives rise to some of the most intricate patterns seen in any Indian art form today. The quality and intricacy of these designs can be attributed to their origin: many are based on themes from nature or mythology, which were drawn from Buddhist texts dating back thousands of years ago! Today, the stories of the valley are illustrated through various forms of Kashmiri embroidery using colorful threads and elaborate motifs, bringing beauty to life.

The Kashmiri karigari, or craftsmanship, has evolved over the centuries and this winter, the styles coming into play are a testament to the new-age trends being amalgamated with the age-old art.
