About Chowk

Chowk is a famous market in the old city of Lucknow. It is a must-go for tourist visiting the city. Chowk is renowned for its garment and textile vendors, particularly its famous Chikankari embroidery work. This is a textile decorative style that originated with the Mughals, and has made a name for itself with its intricate and colourful details. Chikan craftsmen have modernised their style to incorporate sequins, as well as mirror work and beads. Chikan is mostly crafted using cotton, crepe, silk, and chiffon. The fabric needs to be light and airy for the authentic Chikankari creation. Nowadays, you see a wide variety of modern branded showrooms from international names set up side by side along the Chowk market with older local stores. However, the market is ultimately still known for its traditional handicraft stores and goods.
