Embroidery of Andhra Pradesh

The Mathurias of Andhra Pradesh, a tribe found only in Adilabad, inhabit the forest area and, being nomadic, move from place to place looking for agricultural work on land. The women use cross-stitch to embroider their cholis and the borders of odhnis. The designs are linear and geometrical, and very select colours are used.
