The brocade sarees of Gujarat are also very much a part of Surat. The unique point in these sarees are that the designs are woven in colored silk with the background being golden in color. Various motifs of leaves, flowers, birds, fruits, figures of women dancers and other interesting figures are embroidered in these sarees.
Surat is also famous for its zari works. Zari is the fine and delicate thread made of silver or gold, which is used to embroider the garments. Sarees embellished with exquisite works of zari, kinari and salma can be a valuable collection for women. The Gorchola sarees are a good example of these type of works and they are widely in use as wedding sarees. Surat takes pride in its collection of printed sarees.
