Aari needlework is practiced in numerous regions such as in Kashmir and Kutch (Gujarat). This work involves a hook, worked from the top but fed by silk thread from below with the material spread out on a frame. It creates loops, and replications of these lead to a line of chain stitches. The fabric is stretched on a frame and stitching is done with a long needle termination with a hook such as a crewel, tambour (a needle similar to a very fine crochet hook but with a sharp point) or Luneville work. The extra hand feeds the thread from the underside, and the hook brings it up, making a chain stitch, but it is much faster than chain stitch done in the usual way: looks like machine-made and can also be embroidered with sequins and beads - which are retained on the right side, and the needle goes inside their holes before falling below, thus locking them to the fabric. This work is popular for its delicate and finest threadwork which improves the quintessence of hand embroidery. Aari work has always been considered one of the most tedious forms of needle work. Today, with the assistance of innovative stitching procedures, and the role of more artisans, it takes reduced time to complete the embroidery work on an outfit.
Bashir from Anantnag makes Gabba which is a unique type of floor covering or rug prepared from the old woolen blankets in an variety of designs and forms. Popular designs of Gabba are Daal- Guldar (with a circular star in the middle called the Chaand) Embroidery Daal Guldar + Embroidery. The motifs commonly used are borrowed from nature like Maple leaf.
