Of embroidery & elegance: Milishilp in Lucknow is a chic handicraft shop we didn't know we needed
Cutesy, chic, boho, urbane, are just some adjectives that we'll open-heartedly use for Milishilp in Lucknow, for to be this cute in 2022, you gotta achieve a lot! And, mind you, the story behind the establishment of the corner full of handicrafts is as interesting as it gets, too!
A resplendent exhibition of hunar (talent) and kala (skilled craft), the items for sale here range from handcrafted sarees, dupatte, to handknitted bags, jootiyan, and so on. For all the aesthetes, this place, we assure you, can be your new haven for everything pretty!
Exquisiteness of Milishilp's fusion work
From crochet to embroidery, Milishilp specialises in work on handlooms. In the city of Nawabs, the fusion work encompasses blends of Chikankari and traditional crafts of states around India like Madhubani from Bihar, Pen Kalamkari from Andhra Pradesh, Shibori from Rajasthan/Gujarat, Blue Pottery from Jaipur, and so on. Milishilp usually merges the same with Chikan on pure silk and the resultant non-stitched sarees, full suits, or dupattas, become the ladies' favourite.
"Fusion is the forte of Milishilp," explained the owners.
When we talk about the new store in the city that was recently inaugurated, it basically incorporates everything to lighten up the creative person in you — designs on lampshades, serving trays, diaries and wallets will notch up your fashion game, while glistening jewellery, jootis, shawls and bags will win all hearts. Techniques like Ikkat weaves, block printing, tie dye, mirror work, are also employed to adorn the work.
So, now you know what to do whenever gifting is a problem! The products, we don't have to say, make up for impeccable gifting options covering all festivals, birthdays, special occasions, alike.
Milishilp's offers a huge range but that's not even the best part about the brand. Here, you also get to customise what you like and how you like it. Since the brand does not believe in bulk orders of handicrafts, they revel in the process of creating something unique that is catered to your needs. And while at it, they promote local artisans and designers who assist them, thus, playing a great role in 'vocal for local' too.
