Abstract entitled ‘Conversion of Traditional Phulkari Embroidery to Digital Form’ written by Dr. Sarita Devi, Dr. Sushila, Mr. Amit Sain and Dr. Krishi Sarin has been published in Souvenir cum Abstracts/Proceedings Book of the 5th International Conference on “Climate Change and Its Impact (CCI 2023)” : Volume 2, Page no. 34 with ISBN: 978-93-5396-006-3.

This International Conference was held from 9th to 11th June 2023 at Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology (SKUAST-K), Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, India. The other contributor of this abstract is Mr. Vivak Ujjwal from Department of Horticulture, Alga Energy, North India.


This abstract elucidates about ‘Phulkari’ which is a traditional handmade embroidery, literally meaning "flower work", perpetuated by the women of Punjab (North-west India & Pakistan) during the 19th century and till the beginning of the 20th century.

Even though the textile industry today, is imitating this art with the help of machines, ‘Phulkari’ work has almost disappeared in its original form, due lack of interest for manual work, profitability, industrialization etc. This abstract provides the landscape on present research.
