Zardozi the traditional art of court embroidery is the sheer magic of nimble fingers and imaginative designs, envisaged by the ensemble of lustrous metallic wire which was traditionally the silver wire coated/plated with gold, silk threads, beads and stones. The book attempts to trace the history of zardozi, its traditional manifestors, the zardoz, in the context of the survival of the production system the karkhana, the social system, the formal, non-formal and craft education of the children in zardoz community, the techniques and most importantly the design and forms. The book is a useful guide for those having keen interest in traditional Indian textiles, anthropologists, museologists, promoters of craft education and the pace-setting designers
