The patterns and motifs are dictated to this art through these techniques. Beadwork art is used in the wall decoration and potholders, etc. 'Kathis' are mostly known as producer of best beadwork. This art mostly done on the white background, they use beautiful and vibrant colors on white background with very distinct patterns. Over the doorways generally beadwork 'torns' are used. Beadwork art required lots of skill and hard work. Beadwork art is very closely and nicely stitched together, that’s why it is also used to curve to make bags and other articles too. The stitching is so strong and hard that it does not even need fabric give support.

Khambat is the center for the bead making. From Ahmedabad , it just takes an hour to reach Khambat. The art of beadwork and stone cutting craft in Khambat is begun from ancient times. Along with the hills of Gulf of Khambat, the agate is pitted.
