Lucknow Hand Embroidered Chikankari Kurti Frock

One of the finest embroideries of the world, Chikankari is an art which results in the transformation of the plainest cotton fabric into flowing yards of magic, also famously known as “Shadow work” or “White embroidery work“.

Fabric Used – Traditional Chikankari is embroidered on Muslin cloth (lightweight cotton cloth in a plain weave) with a white thread.

Motifs – The most common motif used is that of a creeper. Individual floral motifs may embellish the entire garment or just one corner. Among the floral motifs embroidered, the jasmine, rose, flowering stems, lotus, and the paisley motif are the most popular.

Colors – The dye used is made up of different varieties of gum trees and is dried into small lumps.

Process

The embroidery process of Lucknow Chikankari is very complex and needs a lot of expertise.

The process undergoes five different stages namely cutting and stitching, printing, embroidery, washing, and finishing. Cutting is carried out in lots of 20-50 garments. The layouts are done to minimize wastage of materials. Stitching is often done by the same person. Printing is carried out by the use of wooden blocks dipped in dyes like Neel and Safeda. After this, the fabric is embroidered by women. The last process, which is washing and finishing, takes about 10-12 days. This includes bleaching, acid treatment, stiffening, and ironing.

Uniqueness:

About 40 different stitches are used for Lucknow Chikan embroidery. Each stitch is used for one purpose only.

Maintenance:

  • Do not soak it in detergent for so long.
  • Wash separately.
  • Do not bleach.
  • Dry in Shade.
  • Iron at low heat.
