Embroidered majorly in the states of Haryana & Punjab, this style uses stitch on the backside of the fabric, so the design takes shape in the front. The base used is usually a hand-spun or natural dyed khadi cloth. This contrast of dull fabric and bright threads is what makes it extremely attractive. Phulkari is worn during celebrations and festivities, mostly in northern India.
