“Bharua Qaseeda Kurti” One of the forgotten traditional trousseau from Bihar
Author(s): Archana Ranjan
Bihar, one of India's 28 states, has its own rich culture, tradition, customs, festivals, food, art forms, and crafts. Bihar had and still has many traditional textiles, which were/are worn during many festivals and occasions. Some of them have been forgotten by people today, while others have managed to stand the test of time. One attire, ‘Bharua Qaseeda Kurti’, worn throughout Bihar, was special but brutally forgotten by people of Bihar. Qaseeda is a technique of hand embroidery and is arguably the soul of these kurtis. The patterns of drafting, cutting, and stitching in these kurtis were nearly the same across regions in Bihar. But the Qaseeda was different in all regions. The technique, motif, and colour of embroidery were completely different in all the regions. When I started researching about these, I found some more interesting knowledge about the Qaseeda style.
