Suits with Chikan work exhibit grace and elegance which is subtle and unmatched. Traditionally done with a white thread on a white fabric, today a wide range of fabric and colours are employed, the most popular being pastel hues.
According to popular belief, Mughals introduced this Persian craft to Indian artisans and lavished it with royal patronage. After the empire’s downfall, the artisans spread throughout the country with Lucknow being established as its main center. Lucknow continues to be the hub of Chikankari work and houses generations of families engaged in this work as their vocation.

Chikankari Suits are mostly adorned with floral patterns or motifs. Due to the strong influence of Persian aesthetics on this craft, flowers have been a staple in Chikankari designs. The types of flowers (including their stems, Buti, leaves and Paisley motifs) have evolved with the changing times but their intricate patterns and delicacy have stayed.
