There are many legends around the origin of the delicate and finely detailed art of chikankari. Some say that the Mughal empress, Nur Jahan, introduced this Persian embroidery style to India. Others talk of a traveller who taught chikankari to a hospitable peasant in Lucknow. While its beginnings may be unknown, Chikankari's journey since has been clear. Finding a home in the City of Nawabs, chikan work has flourished in Lucknow in the last two hundred years. It has captured the imaginations of designers and wearers alike; constantly being seen in movie premieres, global runways, museum exhibits, and everyday personal wardrobes.
Inspired by this iconic embroidery style, we bring to you our fresh new collection of Designer Lucknowi Dresses. Taking roots in the minimal and ethereal quality of chikankari work, our designers elevate the embroidery with modern silhouettes, surprising embellishments, and a striking colour palette.

Add some ethnic charm to your wardrobe with the perfect Lucknow Chikan Dress
Traditionally, chikan work is done with white yarn onto white muslin cloth. Over the years, the embroidery repertoire has expanded to include pastel shades of pink, blue, and yellow as well as different fabrics such as georgette, organza, chiffon, silk, and cotton. Common motifs are often inspired by nature such as lotuses, jasmine creepers, roses, foliage, and leaves. The latest collection of designer Lucknow Chikan Dresses uses these classic motifs in new and innovative ways, giving you pieces that are unique and trendy.
Ideal for a night out on the town, bring home a brown lucknowi midi dress adorned with butti thread embroidery and golden sequins; its glimmering visage is sure to make heads turn wherever you go. Get in the swing of things with a dress that calls back to the Roaring 20s - a gorgeous green beige dress in lucknowi georgette base decorated with tassel embellishments and cutouts at the waist.

The dreamy look of chikankari is crafted by detailed and thoughtful stitches done by hand by skilled artisans. There are three main categories of stitches - flat stitches, embossed stitches, and jalli stitches. Flat stitches such as taipchi, khatao, pashni, gitti, and jangira are used on the borders and create the outlines for the motifs. The motifs are then filled with embossed stitches such as murri, pechni, and phanda that add texture and depth to the embroidery. The final and most complicated addition is the jalli stitch which gives chikankari the characteristic delicate net effect.
The skill and excellence of our artisans are on full view in the exquisite pieces of designer lucknowi anarkali dresses and designer lucknowi chikan dresses in this collection. It is their love for the craft and attention to detail that makes our lucknowi garments into true masterpieces. We strive to support and promote local artisans, many of whom are women, and collaborate with designers that also share these values.
