Embroidered lehenga is the traditional Indian clothing of women since ancient time. Popular both among wanderers, tribals as well as royal people of olden days, embroidered lehngas come in many different styles. The tribals prefer embroidered lengha in ordinary cotton fabric with as many as eighty panels with ornate embroidery and mirror work.
Royalty could afford more intricate brocade, tanchoi and heavy satins even with real gold and silver embroidery, studded with precious stones. The length of tribal embroidered lehenga varied between knee to ankle, whereas that of richer people was always long enough to touch the floor as they moved.
