Lucknow Chikan Saris

If legend is to be believed, the chikan style of embroidery was first introduced by Nur Jahan, wife of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir, for whom the Taj Mahal was built. Chikan or embroidery is a unique style of using white thread to create intricate designs on garments. A Geographical Indication (GI) status for Chikan in December 2008 officially recognized Lucknow as an exclusive hub of chikankari. The piece begins with the use of one or more pattern blocks that are used to block-print a pattern on the ground fabric. The embroiderer then throws the stitches on the pattern, and the finished piece is carefully washed to remove all traces of the printed pattern.

Lucknow chikan saris are works of art. Light and supple fabrics, paired with floral motifs embroidered on the borders and pallus in the chikan style make them perfect for occasions that require fluidity in movement with the appeal of tradition, such as wedding sangeets.
