The process of repurposing zeri and transferring it onto a new garment is known as tedsees. With the skilled handiwork of specialized artisans, zeri from worn out garments is carefully removed and attached to new items of clothing. The dexterity of the tedsees specialist is key in maintaining the appearance of the zeri and ensuring that it retains it’s value.
