Chikan has basically originated in Luknow, India during the period when Mughals ruled. Its a delicate handicraft done in white cotton threads on plain muslin by skilled workers. Its is a very burdensome and time-taking work. That is why chikan embroidery is quiet expensive as compared to machine embroidery. 

Chikan work is  usually done on fabrics like crepe, Georgette, Chiffon, Silk, Cotton and other fabrics which highlights the chikan work.And those who like the royal taste, then chikankari apparel would be imperial gem in any fashion freak’s closet. Chikankari also include diversity in stiches such as shadow work, Ghas patti, funda, geometrical pattern, bulbul, jora etc.
