The Bihari embroidery technique includes two types of stitches : chain stitch, and the Sujani stitch (starkly similar to the running stitch). The Chain stitch is like weaving, where each stitch is followed by making a loop over the previous stitch. The
running stitch is a continuous type of stitch where the thread is changed only when it finished. The style of embroidery uses cotton thread, over different types of cloth.
Sujani Embroidery mainly depicts stories, and in the past has been used extensively to spread awareness about social issues. Some of the most popular themes remain to be ‘population control’, ‘save the environment’, ‘hygienic practices’, etc.
