Brocade fabric is considered as a dignified fabric that was used by royals and has an intricate pattern or design which is often made with coloured silk and sometimes with gold and/or silver threads. The name “Brocade” comes from the Italian word, “Broccato,” which means “Embossed cloth.” The designs on fabric emerge out to be embroidered on, but actually, it is not, the patterns are woven into the cloth using warp and weft technique.
The communities practising this art form are Wankar and Maheshwari and they use motifs like Jaal, flower, creepers, bird or animal forms, square or other geometrical forms.
