Making of Lucknowi Chikan - Chikankari Embroidery Process


There are three stages involved in making chikankari namely block printing, embroidery work and washing. Initially, the design to be worked is printed on the plain fabric. The wooden block is dipped in the colour solution. Then it is printed on the fabric. There will be different blocks for butis, floral patterns and borders. The printed fabric is now ready for the embroidery work. The embroidery is done over the printed design pattern using needle and thread. Different types of stitches can be made in one product. Washing is the final stage of production process. The fabric after embroidery work is first soaked in water and then washed to remove the block printed blue color. Then it is starched and ironed to obtain stiffness. The final product is now ready for the market.

Chikankari - Lucknowi Chikan - Origin and History


Chikan is a traditional embroidery style from Lucknow, India. Literally translated, the word means embroidery. Believed to have been introduced by Nur Jehan, Mughal emperor Jahangir's wife, it is one of Lucknow's most famous textile decoration styles.

There are several theories about the origin of Chikankari. Chikankari (process of chikan) was basically invented in Lucknow (India). It developed quickly during the period when Mughals ruled and consisted of style inspired by Persians. Lucknow in India grew into an international market for its renowned Chikankari work. There are references to Indian Chikan work as early as 3rd century BC. by Megasthenes who mentioned the use of flowered muslins by Indians. There is also a tale that mentions how a traveler taught Chikankari to a peasant in return of water to drink. However, the Noorjahan story is the most popular of the lot. The name Chikan has been derived from the Persian word Chakin or Chikeen meaning a cloth wrought with needlework
