Buy Lucknowi Chikan Sarees Online

The technique of creation of a chikan work is known as chikankari (चिकनकारी چکن کاری). Chikankari is a delicate and artfully done hand embroidery on a variety of textile fabric like muslin, silk, chiffon, organza, net etc. White thread is embroidered on cool, pastel shades of light muslin and cotton garments. Nowadays chikan embroidery is also done with coloured and silk threads in different colours to meet the recent fashion trends and keep chikankari up-to-date. Lucknow is the heart of the Chikankari industry today and the variety is known as Lucknawi chikan.



Chikankari or Chikan work in the recent times has also adapted additional embellishments like Mukaish, Kamdani, Badla, Kamdani, Sequin, bead and mirror work, which gives it a rich look. Chikan embroidery is mostly done on fabrics like, Cotton, Semi Georgette, Pure Georgette, Crepe, Chiffon, Silk and any other fabric which is light and which highlights the embroidery. Also, it should be taken care of that the fabric is not too thick or hard, else the embroidery needle won't pierce it.


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 stitches the pattern, and the finished piece is carefully washed to remove all traces of the printed pattern Process of Chikankari includes following steps:
  • Design
  • Engraving
  • Block printing
  • Embroidery
  • Washing & finishing
The patterns and effects created depend on the types of stitches and the thicknesses of the threads used in the embroidery. Some of the varieties of stitches used include backstitch, chain stitch and hemstitch. The result is an open work pattern, jali (lace) or shadow-work. Often the embroiderer creates mesh-like sections in the design by using a needle to separate threads in the ground fabric, and then working around the spaces.
