Kasuti – The folk art

Kasuti is the conventional form of hand embroidery practiced in the states of Karnataka and Maharashtra.
Kasuti is done on traditional hand woven sarees like Ilkal, Dharwad sarees. Dark shades are used for the work. Some examples of  Kasuti  designs are chariots, elephant, peacock etc are in geometrical shapes, and   can be done by counting treads of the fabric.    

To date this exquisite work come long way by traditional sarees to silk sarees and dress materials also.
