Khinkhwab brings you Pure Tilla Work saree from the heaven of earth Kashmir.
Fabric – Pure Crepe Silk
Craft - TILLA EMBROIDERY
An embroidery that makes shawls relatively expensive is Tilla embroidery. This type is so prevalent in the valley that every bride should have at least one phiran (a garment worn by Kashmiri women) embroidered with tilla embroidery in her trousseau. Or else a shawl ornate with Tilla embroidered is expected by the onlookers.
Tilla originated from a village called “Zari” in Iran. But when Syed Ali Hamdani, a Sufi saint, traveled to Kashmir with his artisans, he introduced the same to the local community. The then-ruling Mughals were fascinated by its royal demeanor and used this embroidery in their royal courts.
