The topmost speciality of Kasuti embroidery is the designs are never traced. The design remains in the mind and is recreated on the cloth directly with the needle and thread. Previously there were no measuring tools used for this art. Artists were using their palms, and fingers for measuring the spaces and patterns. Kasuti is done by counting the number of threads. Kasuti has always been a domestic art. The traditional art form is passed from generation to generation. Due to intricate designs and exquisite hand work the art gained popularity across borders.
Prominent colours such as red, orange, yellow and purple are used for Kasuti embroidery. Formerly Kasuti embroidery was done on Irkal saree wear and Khanns were utilised as blouse pieces. Nowadays it is made on all types of clothes. Curtains, covers, clutches, tote bags, wall hangings and dress wear like Mysore silk, Angi or kurtas are adorned with Kasuti embroidery.
