Zari work is said to be one of the oldest embroidery work which is done intricately with hands by Indian craftsmen. This work looks the best on silk or velvet fabrics as it enhances the embroidery work the most. A unique combination of colours and patterns are quite commendable in this traditional lehenga, zari lehengas. Bridal zari lehengas are the first choice for all the Indian ladies as it gives a twinkling touch to the whole couture.


People tend to confuse zari work with zardozi embroidery quite often. Zardozi work is simply a form of zari work. But there’s one main difference between zari and zardozi work, i.e, zardozi looks thicker and heavier than zari work. Also, traditionally it used to come in golden and silver coloured embroidery only, but now as the crafting industry has taken a plunge, zari metallic threads come in different colours.


Famous Bollywood divas have slipped into beautiful zari lehengas in reel as well as real-life, which explains the ethnicity of this bridal wear. Enough said let’s dive into the list I’ve created of beautiful zari lehengas for any wedding ceremony.
