We have seen embroideries inspired by birds, animals, foliage and even humans, but have you known embroidery that has been inspired by the way someone writes? Kashida is a Kashmiri style of embroidery that has its roots in the beautiful Arabic calligraphy also called Kashida. The elongated and free flowing style of cursive writing is what is said to have galvanized it. It is a product of Persian and Mughal influence.

This fabric art is as gorgeous as the people and sights of Kashmir and its designs remain as fresh as Kashmiri apples. The intricacy involved in this artwork is worth appreciating. It is seen in the famous Kashmiri shawls, saris, veils and even home furnishing items.

Each kashida fabric is made with toil and care and hues of Kashmir on it. The patient skill of the artisans provides it with a mystic charm. They have been and will always be beautifully written in history, present and the future.

Kashida is a Kashmiri style of embroidery that has its roots in the beautiful Arabic calligraphy also called Kashida. The elongated and free flowing style of cursive writing is what is said to have galvanized it.

The plain-woven cloth is placed flat and then rubbed with a piece of polished agate till it becomes perfectly even. The design is drawn on paper and it is then pricked on with a needle. The charcoal powder is rubbed on the pricked holes to transfer the design on the fabric. The stitch used is the darning stitch, the thread being made to pick up the loops of the warp thread. The technique has made the embroidery look as prepared on the loom. Crewel embroidery is done with the use of hook. The satin stitch has been adopted to cover larger surface without pulling the cloth. Chain is used only in inferior places and never on expensive piece of work. A thimble called ‘Nyatth‘is worn on the index finger of the right hand to protect it from the prick and to push the needle into the thick cloth. This embroidery is done on silk, cotton and wool fabrics.

Traditional embroidery design includes motifs and patterns with interesting names like Pamposh (lotus), Sosan (Iris), Dachh (vine), Sumbal and Yambarzal (hyacinth & narcissus), Dainposh (pomegranate). Lions, rabbits, wild cats, deer, horses, bulbuls, partridges, herons, ducks etc are most represented. ‘Jamwar’ is a kind of pattern, which covers the entire shawl. ‘Jalidar’ designs are literally net-like designs. ‘Khatraash‘pattern involves lines of different slopes. ‘Bootidar’ pattern comprises small repetitive motifs are used in tunics, kurtis and shawls. ‘Charbadam ‘pattern is a union of four paisley forms. The traditional motifs of Islamic and Persian influence have been absorbed over time in the Kashmiri twist. The most popular of those are the Gulab (rose) pattern and the Badam (almond) pattern. It is also known as Shawl-tarah. The artisans also use motifs of ‘Chinar’ (Maple) leaf very frequently. Most of these mentioned calligraphic forms are also still used in the embroidery which is done on Kurtis, Tunics & Accessories.
