NECK YOKE and PANEL Embroidery Design Concept for Indian Ethnic Garment by Sona Nemichand Chopra Ahmedabad 

25th December 2013 by Sona Nemichand Chopra, Sona, Chopra, Sona Chopra


Historically, it is quite difficult to trace, in which part of the world was the art of embroidery invented. Certainly when King Suleman learned the art of Coat making for himself than to his troops, that was the first sewing art described historically. While sewing the cord, threads got entangled in a decorative style on the outer side of the garment and that mistake was the invention of embroidery which is quite different to the other part of the history of versatile human habitats. Till today no text is available which clearly shows the invention of embroidery art other than the above invention. Later came in the versatile names of embroidery techniques in relation to different regions and people all over the world.
Embroidery is a craft art, which adds value to textile surfaces as well as apparels in many ways but its basic nature remains to be embossed which is tactile and seen.
According to GIFT Textile Education Program methods of teaching, the practicality of embroidery craft should be taught first followed by its conceptualization for the respective embroidery style, only then will the perfection be gained for this purpose. It is simply a synchronization of craft and design where both the needs are essential to be taken care of, by the designer.
The fresh learner at GIFT is taught the following embroideries to clear their mind about utilization of space through the stitches as running stitch and its variations, stem stitch, back stitch, chain stitch and its variations, lazy-daizy and its variations, cross stitch, herringbone and its variations, fly stitch, web stitch, coral stitch, various kind of couching styles button hole and blanket stitch, and many more variations. This helps to conceive ideas for its conceptualization in relation to various forms like that of the earth’s paradise nature, geometry, abstract, creature and its variations of the stitches according to the enhancement of the design because these are a subject of value addition to Textile, as well as Apparel Design.
GIFT teaches conceptualization and Final Design Drawing for the subject of Embroidery for Hand as well as Machine Embroidery. When this workmanship merges with the abstract designs, the work is highly appreciated by industries since it is unique and has its own style of development which is taught only at Gandhi GIFT NGO. Unfortunately this kind of learning has also not been seen in some learned designers who are in the field of embroidery since ages. That is why at GIFT this in depth understanding of the subject gives them more earning and recognition.
Further at GIFT, they learn to draw and compose countless small “boutis”, while drawing inspiration from earth’s paradise such as from nature’s leaves, flowers, stems, thorns, and buds, and also learn to set them in a perfect repeat flow, in a very short span. Other such endless forms can be objects of nature like, fruits, insects, reptiles, small version of animals, birds etc and manmade objects are incorporated in the above learning with empirical methods. All this work is regularly checked and corrected by GIFT faculty which shows the power of handling their subjects at GIFT that simply cannot be compared with others.
The above learning, in a single unit is also used in various styles for ornamenting surfaces of Textile and Apparel Design.
After learning the above, the students learn to convert the above mentioned concepts into designs used in panels, yokes, sari borders and “pallu” and later transform these into embroidery.
Once they learn to draw accurate forms of controlled size for the embroidery concepts in any style, it boosts the confidence level of each learner due to which their further education at GIFT, especially in Textile Print Design and Jewellery Design becomes much simpler for them.
The hard truth is that in today’s time, the well known Fashion Designers globally are not able to draw and conceptualize as above mentioned. This is because they are unfortunately not so lucky to be associated with GIFT, because it is seen over the years that the GIFT graduates realize this strength and certainly value it more than others today.
Similarly while begging, if we recall our entire life till today, we find that there are many instances that each of us have begged in our life. Firstly, from parents, close relatives, neighbors etc, either for humanitarian good or professionally that even we cannot remember. In the above manner each GIFT learner gains knowledge in his life where sky is not the limit, all by the grace of God Almighty.
Initially Prof. Khalid was in a dilemma whether to add this course content in the Textile Course Abstract, because no institute inspite of having their kind of fame and recognition, taught like GIFT. Over the years Prof Khalid has continued meditation and practice in learning and teaching the above stated examples. So, at GIFT, since 1995, it becomes much simpler for the students and their family to enjoy their life with knowledge which they can practice professionally.
