This
indigenous art is thought to have been developed by the local darner Ali-Baba and later supported
by an Armenian trader named Yousuf Khan in 1803. It became a crucial component of trousseaus
and other traditions. Kashmiri embroidery, also known as 'Kashida Kari,' arrived in Kashmir with the
Persians. Men and women both contribute to the creation of a single piece in this craft, which makes
it unique. Before reaching the seller, the final impression of Kashmiri embroidery travels through a
number of levels. Every level is important in its own unique way and requires effort and expertise.
An exquisite and priceless craft is produced through the use of the proper fabric, which allows the
motifs to combine to form meshes, the "naqash" pattern, the mingling of vibrant stitches that
produce various motifs and designs, and finally the washing stage. This art form's legacy has been
preserved in Kashmir, and it is now recognised internationally. Intercultural integrity has always
been linked to Kashida Kari. It emits the aroma of respect, love, and natural beauty. Well-known
dignitaries have been spotted accepting this gift, which has satiated their impeccable sense of style.

The last few years have seen a boom in the popularity of Kashmiri embroidery. In the past, the local
and international markets were aware of embroidered dresses, shawls, and a few other furnishing
and decorative products. However, nowadays, kashida Kari is used to decorate everyday items like
handbags, cell phone pouches, laptop bags, etc. With the combination of two or more types of
Kashmiri embroidery on one piece, it has begun another fruitful journey. Although this is not a new
concept, fashion designers are standing by their sartorial decisions to wear clothing with Kashmiri
embroidery, and this is now beloved all over the world. In religious ceremonies, shawls and coats
from Kashmir are embroidered. Abhishek Bachan and Virat Kohli were recently spotted wearing this
well-known Kashmiri artwork during their sacred rituals. People watch these celebrities and imitate
their sense of style. As evidenced by the history of films like Rockstar and Fitoor, this inspiration has
stolen the hearts of film directors. Its complexity and rarity enchant actors and filmmakers, who are
constantly trying to recreate it and use Kashmiri embroidered clothing to add flair to their sets. For
fashion enthusiasts, wearing shawls, jackets, blazers, and Kurtis with Kashmiri embroidery has come
to symbolise a fashion statement. Internationally famous individuals must not be forgotten when
discussing non-local patrons of this form of art. At various events, many icons wear handcrafted
Kashmiri embroidered shawls, kaftans, and jackets to present their signature look. People travel to
Kashmir to buy this revered art in order to satiate their hedonistic urges. Particularly regarded as
local art and craft, Kashmiri embroidery has reached its peak and appears to be very promising for
the regional markets. The local textile industry has been promoting modernised Kashmiri
embroidered clothing for the past two years. Additionally, there is a boom in the combination of two
distinct embroideries, such as a sozni and tilla mix. The bridal beddings that each bride receives from
her parents as a token of their affection also make use of a novel concept of combining crewel
embroidery and tilla embroidery. For the local market to succeed in the future, local designers must
now put forth constant effort. More importantly, it has carved out a spot for itself in the newest
fashion movement, and it is our duty to take measures that can both ensure its smooth production
and help brand this art of variety, which has so much to offer.
