ADA CHIKAN x THE LAAL CHOORI

Hi Lovely People

It’s been long time I haven’t done a blog but I am back with a lot for you guys! Sp I’ve decided everyday I’ll be posting one blog as I have a lot for you guys!

So, I recently received some gorgeous kurtis from ADA Chikan, it is a store where you would get beautiful chikankari embroided suits, sarees, kurtis and a lot more.

Most of you would know what chikankari is but let me breif you all what it is. So, Chikankari is a traditional embroidery style from Lucknow, India. Beleived to have been introduced by Noor Jehan, the wife of Mughal Emperor Jhangir, it is one of Lucnkow’s best known textile decoration.

Below I am sharing some motifs of emboidery of chikankari.

I receibed 3 kurtis one of which I would be feuturing in the blog-

It is a beautiful red and black kurti with emboidery done all over it. I paired it up with a black palazzo from Biba India and LAAL CHOORI (Red Bangles).

NOW COMING TO THE LAAL CHOORI( Red Bangles)

Red Bangles have a great significance in Indian culture. A bangle is one of the most important ornament that Indian women wear.

Firozabad city is known for it’s glass and bangle works which is the most shopped product by tourist and local people from markets of Firozabad. The city is the central hub to many glass manufacturing industries. and also many small scale glass related industries.

From a child to an old person, they all know the process of glass making. There are small tiny lanes with dim lights inside where people work to create these beautiful bangles. By the time the kids start having their senses they are taught to create bangles. This is such an irony that a dark room with a dim light and kind hands working create so beautiful masterpieces.
