22 Exquisite Chikankari Designs From Anjul Bhandari Collections To Fall For
Chikankari embroidery has been a favourite of Indian brides for the richness and elegance they exude.
Chikankari like a lot of other trends was brought to India by the Mughals and has been a darling of the Indian women since then. Earlier, chikan was referred to white embroidery on a white cloth, and then slowly it expanded to include pastel colours also.
