Saadgi Chikankari Product is not comparable with other lucknowi chikan kurtas which are low quality kurtas . We use Pure cotton and 70-68 Georgette . The Raw material gets stitched in a kurta form first Post that we do bio wash for the fabric . The fabric used is from reputed mills and passed through lab test . Post the Bio wash embroidery is designed on a kurta with an ink according to its size and then we put the kurtis into machines for embroidery ( if it is Aari Work) If hand work it goes for hand embroidery. After Embroidery we wash the kurta again and then it goes for thread cutting and finishing. Post this process also each kurta passes through 3 quality checks before dispatching it to the customer.
