About

About The Craft

Phulkari, which literally translates into ‘flower work’, has a history etched in the culture of Punjab. Spun from the charkha, this spectacular style of embroidery is patterned on odinis, shawls, kurtis and chunris. The main characteristic of this embroidery is the use of darn stitch on the wrong side of cloth with colored silken thread. A face of fashion that finds its first mentions in Punjabi folklore of the romantic protagonists, Heer and Ranjha, Phulkari is a dream weaver for every Punjabi girl.


About The Artist

Smt. Simran Harika is one designer who thought of putting her flair to revive and preserve the traditional art. She refuses to open a commercial outlet and prefers instead an elite clientele (Gursharan Kaur, the better half of the Indian Prime Minister, and Camilla Parker Bowles, wife of London’s Prince Charles) which values her home-embroidered Phulkaris for their original craftsmanship. She adds embellishments of Zardozi and Mukaish on Phulkari to craft an elegant range of suits, saris and dupattas.
