Karzobi (work done on the frame) thrived in the court ateliers of the Nizams of Hyderabad in the Deccan and was almost symbolic of the flamboyant and robust display of wealth. It is a form of raized zari metallic thread embroidery created by sewing flat stitches on cotton padding.
Karchobi embroidery is hand stitched and is fashioned with a needle that resembles a very small crochet hook which is used to run up and down through the cloth while the cloth is pulled tightly over a large wooden frame called *Adda*. With one hand the craftsman holds the retaining thread below the fabric. In the other, she holds a hook or a needle with which the artisan picks up the Karchobi embroidery material, then she passes the needle through the fabric.
After days of painstaking labour, the result is an exquisite piece of artifact.
