Cutdana kaam is a style of embroidery that uses specially cut stones to sew into fabric. These stones are cut in a way to disperse light. The embroidery follows two broad styles- geometric patterns and nature inspired designs. Given that stones were sewn into clothes, along with the intricacy required to make Cutdana, this style originated in royal and upper class households of India. Today, with modern machinery, the process has become easy and cheap. Hence, today Cutdana embroidery can be found in both formal exclusive wear and regular wear. This artwork is quite popular in indo-western clothing with skirts and gowns having Cutdana work on them.
