Kasuti is a traditional form of folk embroidery practised in the state of Karnataka. Kasuti work is very intricate and sometimes involves crafting upto 5000 stitches by hand and is traditionally made on dresswear like Sarees or Kurta. Its history dates back to the Chalukya period. The pattern to be embroidered is first marked with charcoal or pencil and then proper needles and thread are selected. Kasuti involves embroidering very intricate patterns like gopura, charjot, palanquin, lamps and conch shells.
