• It is usually done on a piece of cloth and this cloth varies in material from silk to georgette .

• Phulkari is done on many items such as a long piece of cloth such as a scarf, or on footwear .

• Many different colours are usually incorporated in it, mainly consisting of bright colours like blue, red and pink. Nowadays it is even done in black and white colours too.

• Sometimes to beautify it mirrors are added and it is made more glittery .
