Aari embroidery or crewel work is a speciality of Kashmiri artisans who create it in fine, concentric rings of chain stitch using a long hooked needle known as a crewel. The craft of Aari embroidery has existed in India from the 12th century and was patronized by the Moghul courts. It is a form of very fine embroidery and suited the working of very elaborate and highly refined floral motifs which the royals favored.
