“A Dark Grey straight cut kurti on pure Chanderi from our ‘Exclusive Chikankari’ Collection. Chikankari is a very delicate and intricate shadow work type of embroidery. It originated during the Mughal era in Lucknow around the 3rd Century AD.The handicraft process employs wooden blocks to imprint the design on the cloth. The chikankari artisans then use various stitches of the needlecraft embroidery, and perform the needlework artistically. The aesthetic appeal of the delicate floral embroidery and the use of lighter colours make it extremely popular amongst people looking for a fine piece of Indian heritage clothing.
Splendid Chikankari stitches of Ghaspatti and Bakhiya work adorn the entire heritage piece with perfect silhouettes of diamond panels. A great specimen of the unmatched beauty of our heritage heirloom crafts. The neckline and sleeve ends are finished with delicate frills. The kurta is meticulously crafted by hand with focus being as much on the intricate design and workmanship as on the quality of construction.
The entire kurta is underlined with soft cotton. Pair this kurta with our matching Kota dupatta and Chanderi palazzo for a complete look. Available in standard and made-to measure sizes.
