Chikankari derives its name from the Persian word ‘chakeen’, which means creating delicate patterns on fabric. The signature embroidery is done by hand to create fine details that gives the fabric a dreamy, ethereal quality. Traditionally, chikan work was done with white threads onto white mulmul or soft muslin cloth. However, with the expansion of the industry, the artisans use different fabrics such as georgette, organza, chiffon, silk, tassar, and cotton as well as yarn of pastel shades such as pink, blue, orange, and yellow.
For an incredible combination of skillful embroidery and new age fabrics, easily browse our fresh new collection of designer Lucknowi Chikan Mens Kurta online.

Gents Lucknowi Kurtas: Balancing tradition and modernity
The understated look of chikankari is achieved due to the immense skill and attention to detail of its artisans. Their craft has been passed down generations and carefully honed over the years. In Lucknow alone, there are over five thousand families keeping the chikankari trade alive with most of these artisans being women. There are designs and motifs particular to each village, which are often inspired by nature and architecture. Thus, it is common to see patterns of lotuses, roses, jasmine creepers, foliage, and leaves along with arches, carvings, and sculptures as seen in Mughal monuments.
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.

How to style your designer Lucknowi Chikan Kurta
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. Its many legends only add to the mystique and glamour of this embroidery tradition. The simplicity and versatility of the lucknowi kurta makes it a fun piece to style. You can finesse your layering technique by adding a designer Lucknowi Jacket. Jazz up a plain outfit with a duck egg blue jacket in lucknowi base and add some dramatic flair by draping over a blue stole with a gold border. For a subtle yet striking addition to a pastel kurta, go for a copper lucknowi nehru jacket made in a pure georgette base and adorned with sequin embroidery. An ensemble fit for the wedding circuit, wear a maroon lucknowi sherwani in a silk cotton base over any Lucknowi Chikan kurta; its geometric print including sequins and nalli hand embroidery is sure to make heads turn wherever you go.
