Literally translating to ‘neat and clean’, soof embroidery is done by the women of the Sodha community. The motifs are geometric and patterns are formed with tessellated triangular forms. The embroidery is done from the reverse side. Patterns are created counting the warp and weft threads that are used as the base grid. The motifs are not drawn on the fabric. The embroiderer plans the overall look and manipulates the motifs as she gets on with the embroidery. The embroidery is created by filling in areas using satin stitch.
They embroider clothes such as blouses, ghaghras, bukanis worn by men over a turban, and home decorations like torans to decorate the doorways, and chaklas to decorate the walls. Sodha women embroider folk games, like chopat, as part of their trousseau.
