Toor is a mesh-like fabric with made of woven threads of open texture with evenly spaced micro holes. The Toor Embroidery applies the cross stitch technique by using breisam, threads made of raw silk, for making motifs and patterns to decorate the sleeves and cuffs of female summer dresses, as well as the hems of ghitra, which is the men’s head piece.
