Details

Beautifully feminine in bold coral red, this shawl celebrates the textile legacy of Lucknow. Uma Tripathi designs the splendid wrap, which is woven of a rich cotton and silk blend. Golden zari dewdrops glisten around florid chikankari embroidery in a slightly darker shade of red. A specialty of Lucknow, the chikankari style has attracted admirers since the days of the Mughal Empire, when it was first embroidered in white over white. Tripathi completes her design with golden kamdani ("metal work") on the shawl's selvage.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Revered since the time of the Mughal emperors, chikankari is a unique style of Indian embroidery with 32 variations. It demands great skill and patience. Uma learned this art from her mother and today she teaches chikankari embroidery to her helpers, who in turn often teach it to their daughters.

Uma has a workshop that provides full-time jobs for several women. She also works with women artisans in neighboring villages. They work from home, enabling them to care for their children and families.

Deeply committed to women's empowerment, Uma helps to provide for the education of her four nieces.
