|Chamba Rumal with Scenes of Gopis Adoring Krishna|
The embroidery of Himachal can be divided into two categories, the Rumal or Handkerchief embroidery and the leather embroidery.
The Chamba rumal has a long tradition of 400 years. This double stitch art of embroidery was brought from Kangra and Jammu and Kashmir in 1764 by Raj Singh, the king of the princely state of Chamba. Now this art form is extinct in Kangra and Jammu, but is still prevalent in Chamba.
