How to Make Baby Kuchu Using Silk Thread

Saree Kuchu Making Materials –

Baby Kuchu is one of the most oldest traditional kuchu designs. Its very simple and yet it looks very elegant. Thick and short tassels are named as Baby Kuchu. Earlier baby kuchu was limited to silk sarees, but now its often used on cotton saree, linen saree, duppattas, stoles and also kurtis and lehengas. In Cotton and Linen Sarees generally cotton thread is used to match the texture.Silk thread is used in Kanjeevaram Sarees because of its lustre. The bunches can be tied in single colour or double colour. The length of the tassel totally depends on an individual’s choice.

This is a very basic design and can be easily done by following our video tutorials below. 

Materials Used – Silk Thread, Big Eye Needle, Zari, Hemming needle, Trimmer, Fabric Glue.

  • Dont worry if you dont have a Big Eye Needle ( We have shared an alternate method below )
