“An elegant peach 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 work adorn the chest and sleeve ends in this heritage piece. The neckline is finished with delicate handcrafted jaali adding to the splendour of this delightful floral piece. This perky hand embroidered Lucknowi kurti is reminiscent of blooming springs and the serenity that surrounds it.
