Gota Patti is a type of Indian embroidery which originated in Rajasthan. Any piece with Gota work on it is instantly glamourous. Whether you want it subtle or shiny entirely depends on the amount of sheen the ribbons have and how widely or narrowly cut and sewn, they are.
It is basically appliqué work, in which golden silver ribbons (most popularly used) are stitched on to the base fabric to create beautiful designs. It is through meticulous drawing, cutting and folding techniques that the craftsman achieves elaborate and intricate patterns, inspired traditionally by flora and fauna. Gota Patti can be used minimally, as accents for a lighter appeal or heavily and in combination with other embroidery forms like zardosi and mirror work, to create heavy bridal pieces.
