Types of Chikankari Stitches

The patterns and effects created depend on the stitches and the thicknesses of the strings utilized. A portion of the fastens incorporate backstitch, chain line and hemstitch. The outcome is an open work design, jali (trim) or shadow-work. Regularly the embroiderer makes network like segments by utilizing a needle to separate strings in the ground fabric, and after that working around the spaces.
