The unfading and extraordinary charm of Lucknowi Chikankari embroidery is ultimate! It is the finest example of Lucknowi craftsmanship which has maintained its influence on fashion till date. A craft patronized by Noor Jahan, the wife of Mughal king Shah Jahan, it is a mesmerizing play of threads on fabrics like silk, georgette, muslin, chiffon, net and many more. It requires a great amount of skill to produce a single fabric of Chikankari. Conventionally, white threads are used to create intricate designs but nowadays many other colored threads are also used to add versatility. These days, designs are embellished with sequin, mukesh, beads, and pearls to add a more decorative appeal to the fabric and create luxurious bridal and wedding attires. Chikankari suits and Chikankari sarees are always a favorite of women who have an eye for fine details and love Indian artistry!
Pastels shades of pink, blue, green, orange and white are widely used to create Lucknowi Chikankari outfits. A beautiful interpretation of this craft is seen here on this exceptionally stunning pastel pink Chikankari sari donned by an Indian woman. The saree brings every bit of glory to the Chikankari embroidery and nothing does more justice to it than a beautiful Indian woman. She looks absolutely ethereal in a traditionally embroidered Chikankari saree with white threads. Pastel pink color of the saree is very well complemented with overall white floral design on the saree and the charm of the design is further amplified with heavy pallu. What is a saree without a matching blouse! A soft pink Chikankari blouse with ruffled sleeves is enhancing the appeal of the sari making it all the more gorgeous as well as contemporary. To add an ethnic touch to her saree look, she wore a pair of heavy chandbaali earrings which were enough to add glitz to the saree. A bright lip shade, round bindi, and casually open hair were befitting finishing touches to a casual yet formal saree style. This saree is a perfect drape for summer days and summer occasions, it is perfect to bring a refreshing touch to your traditional look.
