Zardozi is raised colored metallic threadwork in intricate designs. Parts of it can be gold & silver toned with springs & coils.The art of Zardozi embroidery uses gold wire (zari). The process of making the gold wire (zari) is extremely intricate and involves heating the gold wire and a silver bar in the furnace to form an alloy. Gold-coated silver wire is extruded from this alloy and this wire when wrapped around a silk thread forms zari.Small patterns take days to finish. Large, extensive patterns are completed over weeks.
Hanging a Tapestry
- In general, tapestries look best when hung 4"-6" away from the wall.
- Best when matching hanging rod, finials & drapery rings with clips are used.
- Ideal viewing distance is 8'-12'. This allows best appreciation of the color, mirror work, bead work & embroidered patterns.
- Any creases in the tapestry can be removed by careful pressing in non-steam mode on the reverse side.
