SUSTAINABLE CHIKANKARI BY MEIRAAS.
FISH motif is one of the most celebrated icons of Awadh’s heritage & history. The Fish Emblem was sacred to the Nawab royalty of Lucknow & Awadh, and its inspiration looms large on the many architectural landmarks across Awadh, that are now seeing the ravages of time. We have already created an Original Chikankari Motif of the Fish Emblem, we now wanted to create a revival of the iconic symbol in another masterpiece art of Awadh – Daraz applique.
The Awadhi Crafts are versatile with hand arts beyond Chikankari; Many crafts like Daraz, Mukaish, Aari, Zardozi have a unique standing of their own, yet are now relegated as an add on to Chikan in their most basic & non creative form. Daraz applique is one of them.
Poshaak: (about the dress)
Meiraas wanted to bring high quality design back to Daraz artisans, therefore we got Awadhi Fish motifs created that they are still aware of but have been fairly out of practice to do it. The idea to create this motif came from some images of ancient Chikankari clothes kept in various museums & shown in well researched coffee table books. The rest of the Kurta has brilliant black bootis. the back has unique Meiraas Motif of Awadhi Fish symbol.
Details: The fabric used here is Ethically Sourced soft Handloom Cotton. The buttons are Mother of Pearl.
Kurta Style: This is single kali princess style cut straight kurta
