Chamba Rumal of Himachal


The embroidery of Himachal depicts a fine, delicate, perfect manual work befitting called as ‘needle miniatures of Himachal or Pahari rumal. The rumal has the base of creamy white colour, on which beautiful human figures, birds, flora and fauna are drawn. Colors employed are very bright, bold and brilliant. The Pahari style being aesthetically richer than earlier ones, evolved by the ladies of the court of Chamba also lead the overall development of the art.
