Bisaat or a Game of Chess is the iconic leitmotif of Lucknow City, where the craft of Chikankari is practised.
In the times of Nawabs (the aristocracy of Awadh), the Game of Chess was the perfect & preferred sport for this slow lifestyle loving city & its culture.
Acclaimed Director Satyajit Ray made Shatranj Ke Khiladi, an iconic film, based on celebrated Indian Author Munshi Premchand’s short story of the same name, that outlines the obsession of the engrossing Game of Chess.
This story has been captured in Meiraas Exclusive Chikankari Motifs embroidered on this Cotton Silk Saree.
The chess pieces have been embroidered all over the saree & the checkered chessboard is made inside the Paisley shape.
Length: Approx 5.2 metres
