In addition to adorning walls of royal tents and scabbards, it was also used in the paraphernalia of elephants and horses. Zardozi embroidery work involves making elaborate designs, using gold and silver threads. Pearls and precious stones embellish the work further, adding to its splendor. Since the time of the Rig Veda, Sardosi embroidery has existed in India. Zari embroidery ornaments the attire of gods in numerous instances.
