Fabric: Pure Georgette
Craftsmanship: Jaali Work - Jaali work is a technique that is somewhat similar to threadwork and involves making holes in the fabric. However, the method of doing so is different from the tradition of punching holes in to the cloth. Jaali work involves pulling the warp and weft threads apart with a needle without breaking the continuity of the fabric. It did not emerge as a form of embroidery on its own. This is a technique that is used in chikankari work, which is a specialty of Uttar Pradesh, India. A jaali on fabric is also known as a trellis.
The effect that jaali creates is similar to that of what a net fabric does. It serves to make the garment look more elegant and light. Although jaali work in itself is one technique applied in chikankari, it has many varieties within itself. There are a couple of straight line jaali stitches that are known as hathkati and bank jail. Other more commonly seen forms of jaali stitching are bulbul chashm, makra, mandrazi, phool jaali, sidhaul jaali and Tajmahal.
