Tribal areas embroidery patterns:

Tribal area of Pakistan is renowned for embroidery because of its spectacular designs patterned on the magical colors of vegetable-dyed fabric. The unique use of needle and thread tells many a story of a rich and diverse cultural heritage. The use of patchwork is elaborately decorated with sparkling chain-stitched metallic thread, spectacular colorful mirror-encrusted or sheesha embroidery, shining sequins, beads and even small shells. This ancient pattern of embroidery is survived up till now because of the custom of giving embroidered articles as dowries to brides. The techniques of producing a variety of rich embroidery are handed over from a mother to a daughter, from generation to generation.
