Zardozi is a Persian word that means sewing with gold string. Zardozi attained its summit in the 17th century, under the patronage of Mughal Emperors. The art of zardozi was revived along with many traditional methods of embroidery in the middle of this century, after its decline with the Mughal patronage.
The delicately hand-created work is treasured since time immemorial. It became popular among the affluent Hindu, Muslim and foreign people. This craft has caught on to a larger region of Uttar Pradesh, which is now home to this finest work of gold and silver embroidery.
Solemnizing this elaborate embroidery, Amrapali, unveils an exclusive range of jewellery collection this festive season, on the auspicious occasion of Diwali.
