Zardozi is from the Persian and means "gold thread" . It is an elaborate and opulent art of multidimensional embroidery using gold and silver threads and embellished with precious and semi precious stones to create a 3D effect. Zardozi had its origins in Persia and was introduced into India by the ruling Mughals in the early 16th century. It was used mainly to adorn the robes of the royal families. The city of Agra, home of the Taj Mahal, was the seat of the Mughal Empire and it remains a center for traditional handicrafts that had flourished under the Mughal patronage
