The detailed embroidery has a grace and royal feel in itself. Dabka work is usually done on silk and chiffon fabrics, and is done with zari thread.
The hand embroidery art being so intricate, Dabka employs three to five people to design one product. Moreover, the metal coiled wires or threads are sewed by passing the needle from the middle of the design to give it a 3D look, and make it more appealing. The patterns used in Dabka embroidery, could be various motifs and beautiful designs. However, French knotting or braiding could also be done to give dabka an edgy look.
