Chikan Work Saree or Chikankaree Saree is a traditional Saree from Lucknow. Chikankaree is a unique embroidery work believed to be introduced by Noor Jahan, wife of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir. It is a delicate and artistically crafted handwork on a variety of fabrics like Muslin, Silk, Cotton, Georgette, Crepe, Chiffon and Organza. Generally white cotton threads are used for Chikankari, though other colours are also used depending up on the colour of the base fabric. The artist makes a variety of designs like florals, geometric patterns, Peacocks, Mangos, Feathers etc. on these fabrics, sometimes on the border, or scattered and the whole body. Chikan work is done on light weight clothese since it is a needle work, and hence the Chikan Sarees online sold on our website are light in weight and a comfortable wear.
