The craft that was about to die has under done revival due to the effort made by the government and non government organizations. The number of shops in the Lucknow is increasing day by day. But still the craft sector is unorganized only few organized sectors are available in the city. Unorganized sector mainly consist of the women embroiders or chutkis that are found in the village and are practicing the craft because of some need. They are not the generation carrier of this craft but they want to learn it so that they can earn some money for their family .But due to no knowledge of the craft and the market they are easily getting exploited by the middle men who bring cloth from the city and give them to these women at an extremely low price. The project aims to communicate about the condition of the female Chikankari artisans in the rural area near Lucknow Who are part of the unorganized Chikankari sector.
