Learn how to do makkhi on kurtes by following these simple steps:


One common question that I get asked by Sikhs is how to do makkhi on a kurta. The answer depends on the type of kurta you’re wearing. Dark makkhi bleeds on the first wash. You should choose a lighter color, like khaki, to avoid bleeding. If you choose a dark color, you’ll have to apply the makkhi twice, since it will bleed out the first time you wash the kurta.


The cost of makkhi on a kurta varies from one person to another, but there are many options to choose from. Dark makkhi is extremely common, and it will bleed the first time you wash it. You should choose a lighter color for this reason. If you are unsure about which type to buy, consider buying a kurta without makkhi.


When buying a kurta for makkhi, you should check the material, pattern, and size to ensure it’s not too big or too small. Embroidery sets will cost more but are more durable because they are made with white ezar instead of a dark colour, which will bleed after washing. Also, you should choose a light-coloured makkhi instead of a dark one, as dark makkhi is likely to fade after washing.
