Chikankari is one of the most traditional embroidery styles from Lucknow, it is believed that this embroidery has introduced in the 17thcentury by Noor Jahan, Mughal emperor Jahangir’s wife in India. Noor Jahan was a known talented embroiderer with a particularly fondness of Chikankari work. In this era, most fabrics were used like Muslin or Mulmul as they were best suited for the warm, humid climate. In the 18th and 19th centuries, after the loss of the Empire Chikankari artisans spread all over India and founded various re-established centers.
