The motifs used in pakko bharat are both geometric and floral. These are first shaped out with a chalk like substance and then worked mainly in shades of red, dark green and gold or yellow with a characteristic black, though sometimes yellow or white borders. Mirrors, called tika are used as the centres of the flowers and to form border designs. Though embroidery threads of silk may be employed, cotton is usually favored. Trimmings like mirrors, beads, buttons and tassels enhance this style to produce richly ornamented chadars, odhnas, and kanchlis. There are several kinds of motifs in use for Pakko bharat. The border designs of this style have a variety of expressive names, such as dak mviarna, rana-ro-hand. Floral motifs like kemai-ro-gul or kulhe-ro-guland and peacock motif substitutions like buto bharat and mar are also widely used.
