We are implementing the use of very fine Hand made Cut-work on our Kurtis, Suits and Sarees. For making the cut-work our garments are stitched with two layers of fabric (one underlying the other) making it possible for the fine work to be done. Along with the cut-work, all garments have Chikan Hand Embroidery done on them. All Chikan Embroidery is done by 'Resham' thread and 'Kasab' (the golden thread). There is 'NO' use of any kind of machine for embroidery on our products, all work is done by Hand. The work is intricate and very sharp. All the designs are made on Pure Georgette 60grams and as well as on Cottons. Chikankari is a fine and intricate shadow-work type of embroidery done by white yarn on colourless muslins called tanzeb (tan meaning body and zeb meaning decoration).

The word 'chikan' according to one school of thought appears to have had its origin in Persia, being derivative of chakin or chakeen. Flat stitches are delicate and subtle and lie close to the surface of the fabric giving it a distinctive textural appearance. Embossed stitches are highlighted from the fabric surface lending it a grainy texture and Jaali work which is the most striking feature of chikan embroidery and creates a delicate net effect. The chikan industry has five main processes namely cutting, stitching, printing, embroidery, washing, and finishing. The most common motif used is that of a creeper. Individual floral motifs may be embellished on the entire garment or on just one corner. Among the floral motifs embroidered, the jasmine, rose, flowering stems, lotus and the paisley motif are the most popular. In recent years, the beautiful and wide variety of stitches and designs that were on the decline, have been revived.
