Chikan Saree

Handloom sarees sans any embroidery are gorgeous. Some embroideries that are exceptionally outstanding because of their work are Chikan, Kashmiri, Parsi, Phulkari, Kantha and Convent embroidery. Especially because these are hand embroideries done intricately with threads and are subtle and rich. What looks loud and garish are sequins, zari, zardozi, etc on sarees.
Some of my Chikan sarees, that I have worn previously can be seen here, here, here, here and here.
I have worn the saree shown below previously here. This is a beautiful, soft peach coloured saree with rich chikan embroidery on it. It looks and feels cool in summers. I wore it to catch up with a friend.
