Elegant light olive straight cut kurti 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.
Elaborate Ghaspatti and Bakhiya stitches adorn this piece handcrafted on pure Chanderi. The round neckline has a resham dori with handcrafted tassels and jaali work. Delicate and dainty flowers ornate the neck and sleeve ends and the rest of the kurta is adorned with simple leaf motifs. The graceful Chikankari is done with mpeccably tailored modern silhouettes. A great specimen of the unmatched beauty of our heritage heirloom crafts.
