Chikankari is an ancient embroidery carried out in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. Chikan work was traditionally carried out as white on white embroidery, with floral-vine and leaf motifs that are quintessentially Mughalai, owing to the craft’s Persian origins. Taavi’s Chikankari line brings you intricately worked Chikankari embroidery in soothing neutrals and pastels on soft cotton, featuring a fresh, botanical take on timeless floral motifs.
