Join us on a captivating journey as we unravel the beauty and intricacy of various karigaris and types of embroideries that adorn our creations.
1. Zardozi: The Embellishment Fit for Royalty
Originating in the royal courts of ancient India, Zardozi is a breathtaking art form characterised by the use of metallic threads, gemstones, and intricate designs. Our craftsmen meticulously hand-stitch each motif, creating opulent patterns that exude regal elegance and luxury. From intricately embellished lehengas to majestic sherwanis, Zardozi adds a touch of grandeur to our ensembles.
2. Chikankari: The Sublime Delicacy of Lucknow
Hailing from the enchanting city of Lucknow, Chikankari is a delicate embroidery technique that showcases a graceful blend of stitches and patterns. Each motif is meticulously handcrafted by skilled artisans, creating an ethereal effect on fabrics like chiffon, georgette, and cotton. The subtlety and intricate beauty of Chikankari make it a popular choice for our elegant kurtas and other ensembles.
3. Kantha: The Art of Stitching Stories
Hailing from the Bengal region, Kantha embroidery is a time-honoured tradition that involves running stitches in intricate patterns. Originally used to repurpose old textiles, Kantha has evolved into an art form that depicts narratives and motifs inspired by nature and everyday life. Our Kantha-embellished Bundis, jackets and kurtas embody the soulful craftsmanship and rich cultural heritage of Bengal.
4. Mirror Work: Reflecting Sparkling Beauty
Mirror work, also known as Shisha embroidery, is a dazzling technique that incorporates small mirrors into fabric.

From mirror-worked kurtas to intricately embellished Bundis and jackets, this technique infuses our outfits with a radiant charm.
