BACKGROUND:

Chikankari: 

Originating from Lucknow, India, this hand-done, labour-intensive embroidery technique is said to date back to the Mughal courts. The delicate handiwork began with white-on-white embroidery but has since included coloured fabrics. Chikankari is often combined with other embellishments like badla, sequins and mirror work. 

Badla:

This metal work technique uses flattened metal wires pierced through fabric to create beautiful and intricate designs. Originally, real gold and silver was used to make these threads, but different materials are now used to achieve that same effect.

The Story behind Scorpius

Adding our unique twist, we fondly refer to lucknowi as Scorpius, a nod to the Scorpius constellation. Originating from Lucknow, India, this fabric intertwines with the exquisite embroidery technique known as 'chikan kari,' translating to "embroidery of the imagination," which traces its roots back to the Mughal era.

More Looks with Scorpius

This fabric exudes such opulence and heritage that it simply couldn't be confined to just traditional lenghas and saris. Mani ingeniously found a way to integrate it into everyday wardrobes by crafting adorable mini sets.

The Embroidery Process

What truly distinguishes Chikankari is the unwavering dedication artisans infuse into each masterpiece. Ranging from basic stitches like the "backstitch" to more intricate ones such as the "shadow work," this diverse array of stitches enables artisans to craft a kaleidoscope of patterns, from delicate florals and paisleys to elaborate geometrical motifs. Additionally, the embellishment with "badla" (metal coins) further elevates the allure of the silk pieces, evoking the celestial charm of the constellations.
