Chikankari craft is said to be brought to Lucknow in 18th century from East Bengal by the Nawabs of Awadh. It is said that Noorjahan, wife of the Mughal Emperor Jahangir introduced it in Lucknow. The craft passed on to the womenfolk of the community, as a source of subsidiary earning for the family. However, the emergence of British Raj gave the big shock to the chikankari craft. The import of super fine low priced mill textile from England caused the decline of the trade of chikan craft.
