10 Chikankari Must-have Sarees for your Bridal Trousseau

10 Chikankari Must-have Sarees for your Bridal Trousseau

We often associate bridal couture with heavy designer lehengas, bejewelled looks and OTT accessories. Breaking away from the norm and literally breathing life into your bridal couture is the chikankari fabric. Tracing its origin back to the Mughal courts, this Lucknowi art of embroidery gained momentum after the patronage of Empress Nur Jahan. Influenced by the intricate carvings of Mughal architecture, the art of chikankari is characterized by fine thread work coupled with ornately detailed motifs.

The journey of chikankari from craft to couture has opened up possibilities to experiment in abundance. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that this art continues to be a revered muse of some of the leading designers in the country! This means it has loads of good news for you as well. Bridging the gap between comfort and fashion, chikankari sarees are your go-to fabric for nearly every pre-wedding and wedding function. Presenting a plethora of patterns and materials we bring to you this list of fine chikankari sarees that ought to be in your bridal collection right away! Take a look:
