Kalamkari - The Ancient Art of India
*** A sample video on how the Kalamkari Saree is made is given below straight from Artisans ***
Kalamkari is a type of hand-painted or block-printed cotton textile, produced in Indian states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Only natural dyes are used in Kalamkari and it involves 23 tedious steps to acquire the final precision.
Hindu Mythology has been transferred to generations by Story Telling. Our religious epics have been told in form of stories verbally generations after generations.
With course of time, this process is transformed into Canvas painting and that's when Kalamkari Art was born. It derives its name from "Kalam" which means Pen.
Motifs drawn in Kalamkari spans from flowers, peacock, paisleys to divine characters of Hindu epics like Mahabharata and Ramayana.
