Lucknowi crafts, the heritage of Uttar Pradesh.

Chikankari is one such artwork that makes every wearer look elegant and graceful. The delicate embroidery with subtle thread work makes it perfect for the office and formal occasions. Introduced by Noor Jahan, the Mughal Queen, it makes the wearer indeed look like Royalty on a day off.  There is a Lucknowi dress for everyone as the wide variety of dupattas, sarees, suits, lehenga. Those who prefer to have their clothes tailormade, fabrics work the best.

The process of creating this renowned style begins with selecting the design to the final washing after embroidery. The weaver selects the fabric which is to be embroidered. This fabric is then printed using the block printing technique. The weaver then uses the stitch that best suits the design to embroider the fabric and embroiders the fabric. 


Since the embroidery is so delicate, it can take anywhere between a day or a few weeks for the artisans to complete one dress or a saree.  The originality of Chikan work cannot be recreated using machinery. To make sure you buy only the most elegant of all Lucknowis, visit
