A small embroidery design of any form in any cloth or on any stitched garments is known as bootas.
Bootas can be of any design like floral, geometrical, animals, or any forms.
A continuous or repeatative embroidery design on the border of a saree or any garment is known as Bel.
Aari work and Zari Embroidery The basic stitch used in Aari work is Chain Stitch. It is the foundation of all the stitches of aari embroidery. Aari work can be done with any variety of threads like silk, cotton, zari, wool, etc. Chain stitch is worked from the bottom of the fabric towards the front side or top side of the fabric attached on adda. The art of Zari has been associated with the Aristocratic and Royal Persona- In India for a long time. The art was brought to India by Persian migrants between 1700-1100 BC- the period of Rig Veda. However , Zari work flourished during the Mughal era under the Patronage of Emperor Akbar.
Elegance is what lies in the intricate patterns of Zari work.
I abric used: Organza and Gajji Silk as per my inspiration and design. Embroidery used : Zari Embroidery with golden work.
In my draping exploration I have used
a knotting and tying techniques. I have also rolled the small part of a fabric to form a design.
A draped garment is a garment that is made of an entire piece of cloth; pieces are not cut away as in a fitted garment. It can be held to the body by means of pins, sashes or belts, tying , or friction and gravity alone.
REASON BEHIND TAKING UMNGOT RIVER AS AN INSPIRATION I have always been fascinated with water, fascinated by its beauty, fascinated by the number of forms it can take, fascinated by its nature. Water can be calm and violent too, it can be soothing and disturbing too, it makes sea and covers mountains too in the form of snow. Umngot River originates from the Eastern Shillong Peak, which is located 1800 m above sea level. It drains into the plain of Bangladesh at a point near Dawki Town where the native Khasi inhabitants call it River Dawki.
STORY BEHIND THE RIVER UMNGOT ( It has been said by few people of Dawki ) Once upon a time, these two sisters from heaven decided to race on earth across the Surmah valley ( now major part in Bangladesh ). Umngot was younger among the two. Umngot decided to take the easy route through soft terrain even if it would be a longer route. While Umiew ( elder sister ) decided to break mountains and made her own route as she always considers herself more powerful than her younger sister. She wanted to take the shortest distance to reach the destination. Both started from Shillong peak together but they choose different routes. After few days, Umngot ( younger ) reached Surmah valley but river Umiew was not around her. Umngot waited but didnâ€™t find her elder sister around for many days. When Umiew ( elder ) arrived at Surmah valley, she was surprised to see her younger sister and decided not to stay in Surmah valley thereafter and thatâ€™s the story behind rivers in Bangladesh. The route which younger siister passes through Dawki.
MATERIAL EXPLORATIONS USING SEQUINS AND BEADS
Quilting with fabric and
Creation of surface with Dori.
Fabric used : Organza I have used Organza in my garment to give a transparent and flowy effect. The fabric is also being dyed before stitching with green and blue ombre and then embroidered the surface with dori and thread creating a waves on the fabric as per my inspiration and design.
I have come with my final exploration for creating surface on fabric using Machine Embroidery with dori and thread , keeping in mind the Dori concept.
