Description About Work

Chikankari work is a combination of many different embroidery stitches like shaded, flat, raised and knot stitches. In chikankari work some of the designs are worked from the back of the fabric and others from the front. The work begins with one or more pattern blocks that are used to block-print a pattern on the ground fabrics. Then, the Embroiderer (karigars) stitches the pattern with minute stitches. Finally, they remove all traces of the printed pattern by washing the embroidered cloth gently.

Mukaish Work: Mukaish is a shimmering embroidery embellishment used with Chikankari. It is known for its distinctive pattern and shine. Also known as Kamdani, this glittering embroidery has been a part of the ancient Lakhnowi Chikankari.

Washing Instruction: Dry Clean Only.
