Kasuti is a delicate embroidery form with geometric design that is done by counting warp and weft threads. It is comprised of four types of stitches, using the counted thread method. Kasuti is a beautifully unique art form as a result of its symmetry and the fact that both sides of the fabric look identical in design.
Traditionally, Kasuti was solely found on Indian sarees, dupattas and stoles with bright threading that created a distinct North Karnataka fashion. As we have worked with our artisan clusters to revive the art of Kasuti, we have also attempted to apply more subtle yet sharp color combinations for the modern age. Displayed is a select variety of some of our sarees and dupattas, which highlight the beauty of Kasuti embroidery with a modern eye on Indian garments. From traditional male and female Indian garments to modern blouses and shawls, the applications of Kasuti are numerous.
