Petit Point embroidery
Petit point embroidery is a type that’s similar to cross-stitch embroidery, but is finer because it is smaller in scale. At normal viewing distance, it is less obvious how regular and square the outlines are. The stitch is stitched diagonally or horizontally across the intersection of the canvas yarns. It is also known as petit-point or tent stitch. To ensure that the thread pull at your front is consistent, the thread must be brought back from one stitch to the next in a uniform fashion. This intricate pattern on saris gives your festive look grace.
