The main stitches in Chikanare Bhakia or shadow work, which is one of the most delicate stitches in Chikankari done on fine muslin and has an opalescent ‘shadowy’ effect. The thread is massed on the underside of the fabric so as to create a shadow or opaque on the face of the fabric which is typical of this form of embroidery. The shadow is created by closed Herringbone stitch on the reverse side of the fabric, at times it seems to appear like a delicate patchwork. It is presumed that this style of embroidery tender to pattern itself on Jamdani weaving.
Some historians also hold the view that during the Mughal rule the court had expert ‘Raffugars’, and since the embroidered muslins were so fine that it hardly lasted one wash, these darners did invisible work and this later developed into a Bakhiastitch, although this is a very unromantic view. This kind of stitch was very popular in Murshidabad and Dacca but this art died out, In Lucknow it managed to sustain, survive and is very popular, as all the artisans known this stitch.
Phanda is an inverted stitch or a tiny stitch, picked up by a needle on the fabric repeatedly on the same spot till it becomes a smooth knot and looks like a little pearl. This is popularity know as “chikanaphanda” and it resembles like a French knot. This stitch is quite time consuming but very pretty when used in the center of a flower or around a buti.

Chikan, in the literal sense means ’embroidery’. This traditional embroidery style is one of Lucknow’s most ancient and well-known art forms, believed to be introduced by the Mughals.
