CHALLENGES AND PRESERVATION OF CHIKANKARI EMBROIDERY
Chikankari embroidery, a traditional art form, is encountering numerous obstacles, but one critical hurdle is the shortage of skilled artisans. Unfortunately, younger generations do not seem to have an interest in pursuing crafts like Chikankari embroidery, resulting in the depletion of skilled artisans.
As a consequence, preserving this art form and ensuring its continuation for future generations has become increasingly challenging. To confront this challenge, several organizations and initiatives have emerged to foster Chikankari embroidery and provide training to young people in the craft. The main objective of these initiatives is to safeguard the tradition and guarantee the thriving of Chikankari embroidery art.
But Paramount Chikan is elevating the art of chikankari embroidery to new levels, departing from the traditional long kurta ensembles with white chikan work on plain, pastel fabrics such as muslin, chiffon, mul mul, and organza. Instead, they are venturing into printed poly silk fabric and exploring bolder colour palettes. With a continuous effort to modernize Indian fashion, they have created a stunning range of stylish short kurtas, long kurtis with chikankari embroidery, straight chikan kurtis, trendy kaftan dresses, and even anarkali-style chikankari kurtis.
