5. Sujani


Sujani is an embroidery style that comes from the Indian state of Bihar's Bhusura village.  Sujani is said to have begun in the 1920s and was only used for personal use by Rajput ladies. It started as a type of quilting in which worn-out saree and dhoti patches were stitched together using basic stitches to give them a fresh look. Even the threads used for the stitches were extracted from the sari's borders. An ancient cloth was prepared for the specific purpose of wrapping the newborn in a gentle hug, much like its mother would have. This was done at the time of delivery. The term "Su" is the root of the word "Sujani," which means facilitating and ‘Jani’ meaning birth.
