History Chikankari Sarees

The origins of chikan are shrouded in mystery and legend. Some historians opine that chikankari is a Persian craft, brought to the Mughal Court of the Emperor Jahangir by his beautiful and talented wife Noor Jahan. While some historians say there is evidence of embroidered muslin apparel depicted in the famous paintings in the Bagh and Ajanta caves dating back to the 9th century A.D. Some even opine that chikan can be backdated to the time of king Harsha, who was said to have had a great fondness for white embroidered, muslin garments, but no colour, no ornamentation, nothing spectacular to embellish it. Bana, a contemporary of king Harsha refers to this skillfully embroidered white muslin. Infact, there have been some references of Chikankari being existent as early as 3rd century BC. Megasthenes, a Greek traveller had mentioned about this unique craft involving the use of flowered muslin by Indian in his travelogues.
