Gota braids. Gota braids.

Gota is the collective Hindi word for metal thread braids and trimmings. They were and still are produced in Lucknow and other Indian cities. Gota is a form of zari metal thread fabric.

Gota is woven on looms and not made with either a needle or bobbins. So based on English terminology, gota should be known as braids and trimmings, rather than as a lace, as is sometimes done. Gota is particularly known for its application for gota work, or gota patti.
