HOW TO BUY PERFECT LUCKNOWI CHIKANKARI SAREES & KURTAS
Keep it authentic and clean. RZUstyle curates authentic lucknowi chikankari based on it’s delicate and exquisite workmanship. Traditionally white threads were embroidered on light weight cotton and these are the best buys yet.
A good fit is essential. RZUstyle strives for the best fit possible in all it’s Chikankari Kurtas. Over the years we have worked towards minimizing the need for alterations. Most of our esteemed clients are from the western world and our fits saves them money and time with frustrating alterations.
A white Lucknowi Chikankari kurta is a must have. White is the most common shade available along with a range of pastels and deeper tones. If this is your first Chikankari kurta choose a white, off white or cream one. A white kurta is an essential piece of garment and a Chikankari one is a must have at that.
Choose a pure Cotton Chikankari Sarees. Lucknowi Chikankari work is done on a range of fabrics yet the best ones are on pure fabrics. Cotton is the preferred choice in India given our climate yet synthetics are easier to maintain. You could choose a blended fabric if you work in an air conditioned office or live in a cold country. Pure silks are often heavily embroidered and worn mostly as evening wear. We carry a elegant collection of Pure Georgette Chikankari Sarees Online.
Choose a light Fabric with a great fall. The look and feel of the garment will differ with different fabrics. Traditionally Lucknowi Chikankari was available on crisp, starched fabric yet sticking to a softer fabric with a nice fall is ideal as it is much easier to carry and more complementary. Georgette and chiffons are softer fabrics however pre-washed cotton also has a great feel and drapes well.
Opt for an overall embroidery. Lucknowi Chikankari is mostly embroidered on white and pastel colored fabrics with a white thread. It is elaborate yet subtle therefore an overall embroidered kurta is never over the top, it only looks graceful and beautiful.
Match your camisole/inner. Chikankari work is mostly on whites and pastels it can be see-through, so choose your inner wisely. If you are planning on wearing it traditionally (salwar kurta) keep you inner the same length and the same shade as your kurta. Pairing with your jeans just requires matching the inner to your kurta color and if you are feeling adventurous then a pop of color under your kurta is always a choice.
Wash care for your Chikankari
Caring for your cotton Chikankari Sarees and kurtas is a must else you might be left with a stained not so pristine piece. Wash your white separately from colors. Use a safe stain remover for washing off stains and sweat. Wash in cold water if you are not certain the garment has been pre-shrunk. Hang it out a little damp for drying. Starch once in a while and iron inside out.
