Chikan is a traditional embroidery style from Lucknow, which dates back to the Mughal empire. It is an intricate type of hand embroidery on a variety of cloths including georgette, cotton, chiffon etc. Traditionally, white thread was embroidered onto pastel shades of clothes, but lately, multicolour threads have been used on brighter fabrics to yield even more attractive fabrics. Modern chikan also utilises different decorations like mukaish, kamdani, sequins, mirrors etc. There are thirty-two different types of stitches in chikan and give result to beautiful and attractive pattern.
