Phulkari, which literally translates as 'Flower Work', is synonymous with the culture of Punjab. The embroidery is made with a darn stitch on the wrong/reverse side of cloth with coloured silken thread. Phulkari has strong roots in community activity, as it was carried out by women of different households who would sit together to create exquisite phulkaris for their daughters. Our museum houses a variety of Phulkari embroidery items spread throughout to emphasise the essence of how partition had an effect on the intangible cultural heritage.Generously donated by Chhote Lal Bharany
