  • The word “chikan” is actually translated into “embroidery” and that explains it well for it is a traditional, lovely embroidery style that originated in Lucknow, India. Therefore chickan work tunics are Lucknow's claim to fame internationally. In its origins, chikan was a whitwork style embroidery wherein white threads were artistically embroidered over semi-transparent muslin material. Now, however, this amazing embroidery can be done on a variety of fabrics and colors. Even such decorative additions as sequins have been put into practice.
  • Chikan work tunics begin with one piece of ground fabric as a base and slowly but surely one or more pattern blocks are used lay out the design. The expert embroiderer begins to stitch the pattern meticulously, paying close attention to every detail. Later the fabric is washed and there is no sign of the original printed pattern. Each of the chikan work tunics have unique designs and patterns that change depending on the thickness of the threads used. There are a variety of stitching methods including: chain stitch, hemstitch and backstitch.
  • Chikan work tunics are time-consuming to make but extremely beautiful when completed, which is why consumers are beginning to show more of an interest in these lovely women’s tops. When searching for chikan work tunics, or any Indian women's tops, it is important to consider what kind of kurti you are desiring, including the length, style, fabric and color. Some are drawn to the simple, white cotton chikan work tunics with white embroidery around the V-necks and side vents. A more elegant look may involve a longer design with various color accents.tunics can be sleeveless, short sleeved or long-sleeved. Fabrics commonly used are cotton, polyester, chiffon, crepe and silk. Ladies can stick with the traditional white or go with vibrant reds, blue, greens and more. The possibilities are endless.
  • Chikan work tunics go well with denim pants, slacks or even a nice skirt. These tunics are meant to be worn over another top and are cool in the summer time due to the breathing fabric. As a result, these kurtis have become most popular in the more warm regions of the world and the United States, such as California and Florida. Chikan work tunics are great for casual events, but they can also be worn elegantly for more formal occasions. These tunics have been ranked as some of the most comfortable women's tops on the market today by consumers.
  • Whether going to a family party or to the park for a picnic, chikan work tunics are comfortable, fashionable and affordable. Try one on today.
