SUJINI EMBROIDERY WORK OF BIHAR
Sujani (also known as Sujini) is a form of embroidery originating from the Bhusura village of Bihar in India. The Sujani technique is based on two ancient beliefs. In one ritualistic tradition, it represented the presence of a deity known as "Chitiriya Ma, the Lady of the Tatters". It symbolized the concept of unifying together incongruous elements holistically into a unified whole. The second objective was to make a soft coverlet to wrap the newly born child as if the child was in the soft hug of its mother. The word Sujani is a compound word of ‘Su’ meaning "easy and facilitating" and ‘Jani’ meaning "birth". The materials used in making this product now are expensive pieces of cotton. It was registered under the GI Act in 2017.
