Tuesday, 16th May 2017 | Written By The EAST Team
Chikankari embroidery dates back to the Mughal period, an era known for exquisite textiles. Traditionally made all in white, this is a true artisanal treasure that is perfect for keeping cool in the summer.

More commonly known as Chikan, this style of embroidery involves a design being first traced onto the garment then individually embroidered by hand. Chikan comprises of a combination of techniques including surface embroidery, shadow work and pulled thread on fine material.

The result is a unique, one of a kind product which looks and feels equally as special.

Finished by hand and crafted with care by skilled artisans who combine our intricate and contemporary designs with their traditions of excellence, the result is often bold and always beautiful.
