About Us & Chikankari
I, Rupesh Agarwal, am the owner of Shaan-e-Awadh (i.e. www.shaaneawadh.com).
Chikankari is my family business and Shaan-e-Awadh is my initiative to reach out to customers globally with the help of technology and spread this wonderful historic embroidery art called "Chikankari"
This Chikankari work is a speciality of Lucknow, India, and is hence referred to as Lucknow Chikan, and like us, a lot of people's bread and butter depends on this business. There are very few people who know that Chikankari is only done in Lucknow and no other city in the world.
Chikankari products are manufactured and supplied to various parts of India from Lucknow and are even exported abroad.
These are all hand made, starting from cutting of cloth to hand embroidery and even washing. If it is not hand made then it is not Chikan.
We hope that you like the products showcased on this website.
