The chikankari embroidery is traditionally done on mulmul-a fine muslin cotton fabric made up of a plain weave technique. It means that a single weft thread alternates over and under a single wrap thread. Chiknkari’s name comes from the city of Mosul, Kurdistan(Modern Iraq) where it was first manufactured in the 17th and 18th centuries.
