The term "chikankari" is derived from the Persian word "chikan," which means "embroidery." It is a delicate and intricate embroidery style that originated in the Indian city of Lucknow. Chikankari suits are typically made of cotton, linen or georgette and embroidered with delicate floral or geometric designs. Chikankari is widely used in India, particularly for weddings and festivals.

How to maintain Chikankari Salwar suit?
- For our garments, we recommend hand washing and dry cleaning only.

- Embroidery stains are usually removed by soaking the garment in a detergent and water solution and then gently removing the spots with a soft bristle brush. Rubbing the garment may permanently damage the embroidery.
- Do not use bleach.
- Never wring your Chikankari outfits after washing. Rather, wrap it in a clean towel and allow it to absorb the water. Allow it to dry in the shade.
- Iron on the reverse side only; do not iron on embellishments.
- When ironing Georgette, use the lowest temperature setting. Always place a pressing cloth between the garment and the iron.
- To remove creases from Chikankari garments, use the dry setting rather than the steam setting.
