A community of Chinese weavers who seem to have migrated to Gujarat in the nineteenth century produced exquisite silk-thread embroidery on silk fabrics. These were much prized by the Parsi community from Bombay. Sometimes called Parsi embroidery. These created beautiful pictorial compositions, mainly in satin and long-and-short stitches. Nowadays the same tradition is popular on georgette, crepe and satin silk sarees, in subtle coloured floral compositions.
