Chikankari, a revered embroidery style hailing from Lucknow, India, has enchanted fashion enthusiasts for generations. With a history dating back to the Mughal era, this delicate hand embroidery continues to be a symbol of artistry and elegance. Join us on a journey to explore the allure of Chikankari Suits, a timeless treasure loved by women across the globe.
The term "Chikankari" translates to "Embroidery" and showcases the rich heritage of Lucknow's textile decoration. Introduced by Persian nobles through the Mughal courts, Chikankari's white-on-white embroidery technique adds an ethereal touch to the fabric. This exquisite craft has flourished as one of the oldest and finest art forms in the heart of Lucknow.
The Art of Chikankari:
Chikankari, also known as Chikan embroidery, involves delicate handwork on various textiles like muslin, silk, chiffon, organza, and net. Two main types of Chikankari work are prominent: the geometric 'mukaish' designs and the graceful 'chikan' floral patterns. Artisans skillfully use cotton threads, golden zari, silver zari, and wool to bring intricate designs to life on the fabric.
