CHAIN STITCH - Natively known as "Jalakdozi", chain stitch rugs are the speciality of Kashmir. These rugs used as floral and wall hangings are made on "Hessain cloth" or Handmade cotton cloth, in continued stitch (Embroidery) with superior woollen or silken 2-ply or 3-ply yarn, with the help of a hook type tool natively called "Aurah / Aer "". The designs range from floral, tree of life patterns to animal and human forms . The rug looks like a carpet is supported with cloth-lining to add to the durability. The whole process is done by hand. It comes in sizes 2x3, 3x5, 6x4, 6x9 and 9x12 feet. There are other items in Chain-stitch work like Cushion Covers, Tea-cozy, bags etc.
