Stock Your Summer Wardrobe With Chikankari Clothes From These 5 Places
When summer is around the corner, you flip through your wardrobe and look for comfiest of the lot. With that, we mean, breathable fabrics, best embroidery/prints, and everything that'll help you laze around all day long.
Good news is, since we have successfully survived half the season, we still have some time left to invest in more great pieces. And what’s better than Chikankari? Shop away at these places in Delhi (Oh yes, not Lucknow!) for stunning Chikankari apparel.
Perfect for summers, this place has really good Chikankari work on georgette, kota, cotton and trust us, when we say that it’s good, it really is. They currently stock different shades so, grab them before they are gone.
PS: We are eyeing their collection of floral Kota cotton silk kurtas with Chikankari. The colours are pretty and we also love the summery vibe. While the brand is based out of Munirka, they major retail through their Facebook page.
Price: Starting at INR 1,650.
If you wish to revamp your wardrobe and get in more colours, Kala Kreatives can help you. We love their intricate embroidery and the fabrics are of top-notch quality. As you visit this place, you will be spoilt for choice with the number of options (unstitched and stitched) offered. Although the brand is based out of Sainik Farms, they generally prefer to answer queries on call and you can visit them later.
Price: INR 400 for a short kurta with minimal embroidery.
Based out of Karol Bagh, this place has everything that you are looking for. From Chikankari lehengas and saris, to suit sets, you’ll find it all here. And guess what? They do customise as well. What we love best here are their Chikankari Mukaish-work suit sets so, don’t forget to check those out.
Price: Suit sets start at INR 1,500.
What if we tell you that there is an online shopping portal that sells authentic Chikankari stuff? Lucknowi Andaaz sells fabric materials in cotton, georgette, chanderi-silk, and kota doria that is embellished pretty well with gota patti, mukaish, kamdhani, zardozi, parsi gara, pearl beads, and a lot more. The best part is, they ship worldwide so, get online right away!
Price: Starting at INR 2,600 for saris.
That’s Indian is an online store that retails clothes and accessories sourced from weavers across the country. They are stocked well with Chikan kurtas and a colour palette that will lure you into buying more.
Price: Starting at INR 900
Situated in Shahpur Jat, Anjul Bhandari has a lot of options in Chikankari saris, suits, and lehengas. What we love the most is their colour palette (think pastel shades, off-whites) and the fine embroidery on the garments. The place not only is stocked up with wedding-wear options but also has a lot to offer if you are looking at daily wear.
Price: Chikankari suit-sets starting at INR 30,000.
