My second nephew got married last year. I have two nephews, For the engagement, I designed and embroidered two kurthas for each one of them.. Both these fabrics were fine silk. This blue kurtha was designed for the elder one [Deepak]. We found a tailor, who was willing to cut the fabric for working this embroidery.

The embroidery was done in chain stitches. Silver metallic, light blue and white were the fine silk threads that were used for the embroidery.
