Toda Embroidery has its origins in Tamil Nadu. Locally known as “Pukhoor” meaning flower, this embroidery is an art work among the Toda pastoral people of the Nilgiri hills in Tamil Nadu. This embroidery like Kantha is practised by women. The embroidery adorns shawls. The shawl called poothkuli has red and black bands between which the embroidery is done. As Todas worship buffaloes the buffalo becomes an important motif in the Toda embroidery. Both sides of the embroidered fabric are usable and both men and women adorn themselves with the embroidered cloaks and shawls.
