HISTORY OF CHIKANKARI IN INDIA
India has always been a land of incredibly diverse cultures and traditions. And luckily for us fashionistas, this diversity has led to the formation of some incredible clothing designs and techniques. Chikankari is one such technique.
Originating in the Mughal era about 400 to 500 years ago, the chikankari technique can be traced back to Nur Jahan, the wife of the Mughal emperor Jahangir. Through the generous patronage of Jahangir, this stitching technique flourished under the Mughal empire, with its popularity growing higher than ever.
Before Chikankari work was only done on cotton fabric, staying true to its Mughal origins. But lately, chikankari work has also been expanded to chiffon and silk fabrics.
