The girls training at the institute are trained to this skill to earn a living and the more experienced ones would do more intricate designs which can take months or even longer. Embroidery artworks are sold here as well.

We never expected to buy embroidery but it is breathtakingly beautiful work by a master of an art which is so exacting that it may become a disappearing art. It takes 10 years to become eligible to become a master--if your eyes are still good...More

What a great experience. Seeing the embroidery being done by students and "masters" turns out fantastic works of art. Also there is art by a local international "wood block" artist, all the work is stunning, not exactly cheap, and great if you can afford it...More
