Chamba rumals are moments of ecstasy captured by the Chamba embroiders. It is largely based upon the Kangra and Chamba schools of painting. Worked in details in beautiful colours, the stitches are so closely and finely spaced that no gaps are visible. It may conjure up vision of a handkerchief but to the discerning it is a form of adornment.

The name 'rumal' means handkerchief, but these are not used to be kept in the pocket. These are generally used for covering gifts placed on metal & bamboo trays and baskets on any special occasions as birthdays, weddings, festivals or fairs.

The shape of 'rumal' is varied with square and oblong shapes, they are ranged from small to a bed-sheet length. White Khaddar (cotton) cloth as the base and untwisted, unspun raw silk threads in various hues are used in the rumal. Double satin stitch technique is deployed, which give identical impression to the Rumal on both sides of it.

Besides handkerchief, other products in this craft include wall hangings, hand fans, dice board, bodices, cushion & pillow covers, caps, fans (pakhi) and many other things depicting religious, historical & social themes on the Rumal such as Radha-Krishna, Krishna Ras Leela, Nag Leela, Shikargah, Gaddi & Gaddan with lamb, Minjar fair of Chamba, etc.
