The term `karigar’, means `artisan’ in Hindustani. It is used to describe someone who is equipped with the specialised skills involved in making things by hand.This knowledge and expertise was usually handed down for generations within a guild or family by skilled karigars who were masters of their craft.
India has a centuries old art and craft heritage that includes rich textile weaving traditions as well as surface pattern and embellishment techniques like printing, dyeing and embroidery. They impart a unique look and feel to fabric lengths and stitched garments. Indian embroidery traditions involve working intricate designs onto fabric with delicate cotton, silk, silver and gold metal thread. It was embellished with sequins and precious stones and favoured by royalty to evoke a sense of luxury and opulence.
We invite you to free your imagination and give shape to your creativity with customised orders for zardosi embroidery at our Karigari Studio. Come create the perfect outfit that is truly and uniquely, yours.
It’s Finally Happened! You’ve been invited to an Indian wedding! You are so excited until the realisation sets in that you have NO CLUE what to wear.

So to avoid repeating this faux pas, here are the guidelines I’ve created for myself ever since. Always, ALWAYS have these on hand, whether it is wedding season or not: Accessories In a little shoe box at the back of my wardrobe is a treasure trove […]
I love orchids and I love sunflowers, they’re so big, bright and make me think of all things happy and romantic. But which of these flowers would I use in my wedding decorations? Since there are so many options to choose from, here’s a neat little list of the most popular wedding flowers. These gorgeous flowers can really turn your wedding venue into a magical space: Let’s start with my personal favourite- Orchids! Purple is a common colour used at Indian weddings and fits in well with the general air of opulence and grandeur we wish to project at this occasion. If you want to channel the power of purple but not go overboard (like draping the venue with heavy purple velvet curtains, making it look like a scene from Arabian Nights), use exotic orchids in your floral arrangements. Purple, Pink & White Orchids arranged tastefully can create a rich, elegant theme throughout your space. Not the norm at Indian weddings, let’s check out the happy Sunflower!
