Embroidered Apron: The bib of the apron has Toda tribal embroidery
The Toda Embroidery, also locally known as “pukhoor”, is an art work among the Toda pastoral people of Nilgiris, in Tamil Nadu, made exclusively by their women. The Todas are indigenous tribe of The Nilgiris living at the higher altitudes of these pristine mountains. The embroidery, which has a fine finish, appears like a woven cloth but is made with use of red and black threads with a white cotton cloth background. Both sides of the embroidered fabric are usable and the Toda people are proud of this heritage. Both men and women adorn themselves with the embroidered cloaks and shawls. Documented references to this art form goes back to 1870s. The Todas see this embroidery as their tribute to nature and true to this outlook, they bury their dead with the embroidered cloth covering the body.
