KASHMIR SOZANI CRAFT
Kashmir Sozani Craft form in which embroidery is performed by the skillful traditional Sozani embroiderers of Kashmir, using motifs depicting geography of the land through coloured threads and fine needlework. The process involves the selection of the pattern and tracing of it subsequently on to the fabric surface to be embroidered. The traced pattern is first filled in with embroidery starting with individual motifs of flowers, then finished with defining the outlines and finally the continuous lines that connect these motifs. A single patch is done first and then repeated after it is approved. The historians unanimously believe that this sozani has been introduced and improved by the people who came to Kashmir in the 14th Century.
