Right in the middle of Hazratganj, a new store for chikankari clothes is helping the revival of Lucknow’s traditional art. Alekhya, by Sugnamal, brings ready-to-wear and couture together with their absolutely lust-worthy range of clothing.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Fine craftsmanship in every garment is the hallmark of this concept store. Looking for just a regular top to wear to college? Or a suit for a day party? Plenty of options at Alekhya. Whether you need a light sari for gifting or a heavy one with beautiful kaamdani work for a special occasion, it’s there. Lehengas – the lighter ones for a simple soiree, or a heavier one for a wedding in the family, it’s there too.
But with so many people selling chikan clothes in Lucknow, why should you choose Alekhya? Because we like to be sure we are buying the best there is in the market. Alekhya promises the most intricate chikankari by artisans on beautiful handloom fabrics like chanderi, Monga, matka silk, organza and pure georgette. No compromises on quality, so we don’t end up wasting time in going through heaps of clothes to find our fav piece.
