Aari work, also known as zardozi embroidery, is a traditional form of hand embroidery that originated in India. It is characterized by the use of a specialized needle called an "aari" or "hook needle," which is similar to a crochet hook but has a pointed end. Aari work involves intricate stitching techniques to create elaborate designs on fabric, often using metallic threads, beads, sequins, and other embellishments.The term "aari" refers to the hook needle used in this embroidery technique. The artisan holds the fabric taut over a frame or hoop and then uses the aari needle to create various stitches, including chain stitch, satin stitch, and stem stitch. These stitches are worked from the underside of the fabric, allowing the embellishments to be securely attached while creating a smooth surface on the front.
