Chikankari is the term for the white cotton thread embroidery stitched on white cotton cloth in the Lucknow area of India. The subtle interplay of tonal and textural nuances produced through the varied, finely worked-out patterns -- workmanship once taken for granted but now collected by connoisseurs -- is beautifully demonstrated here by two acknowledged masters of textile design.
