Chikankari is a tradition that has been around for ages and is popular with many people, including Bollywood stars. Lucknow is home to many artisans who practice this art form. In today’s world, why does Chikankari hold such value?
This Embroidery is a versatile art form that can be done on a wide range of fabrics, including silk, organza, cotton, chiffon, and georgette. Combining the lightness and comfort of these fabrics with the fineness of hand embroidery, often combined with Mukaish work, Badla work, and Parsi work elevates the look to another level. Intricate designs are used to make a variety of clothes for men and women, including lehengas, sarees, suits, and dupattas. Whatever the occasion, be it fun get-togethers, weddings, or birthday celebrations, Chikankari is a great choice for anyone who wishes to carry a stylish, comfortable, elegant, and bewitching outfit that is light and easy to wear. Isn’t that interesting? Every woman’s wardrobe would be incomplete without Chikankari embroidered pieces, and this is where their popularity lies.
A art form of the persia that came to India with the Mughal court, chikan is remarkably delicate and intricate work. Among the best designs on fabric is this one of them. While the white thread is on softer pastel-shaded fabrics, Chikankari is mostly done with white thread. In order to stay current, fluorescent and bright colors are being used together with silk and multicolored threads.
For the Embroidery to work its magic, it must be made from soft fabrics. The purer the material, the longer it will last; however, that also increases the price. Because of this, it is difficult to understand why the cost of similar-looking products varies – each product’s quality, thread quality, size, and micron of stitch play a role.
Artisans weave 36 different stitching techniques, such as backstitch, chain stitch, hemstitch, fishbone stitch, and many others. It may take artisans months to create some pieces, and they are the culmination of their brilliance.
We’re trying to combine traditional designs with fusion fashion, bringing the best of many art and craft forms into a single piece. Everyone can find something they like.
