Kathi Embroidery is a little different from the other forms of
embroidery in Gujarat. The patterns include animal motifs, flowers and
peacocks adopted from kathi art. The intervening spaces is filled with
leaves and buds.The mirror work is used to make the center of flowers,
eyes of the birds or flower representations.
The base cloth is preferred to be silk or satin and the thread is
cotton or silk floss. The base in black, embroidery is done in crimson,
violet golden yellow and white with greens and blues sparingly used. The
main stitch is herringbone as it is faster to fill other stitches used
are an elongated darn and chain-cum-interlacing.
