About Printed Cotton Sarees:
Kalamkari cotton saree consists of gorgeous designs that depict folklore, epics, gods and other artefacts either hand painted, or block printed.
Kalamkari or qalamkari is a type of hand-painted or block-printed cotton textile, produced in Iran and India. Its name originates in the Persian, which is derived from the words qalam (pen) and kari (craftsmanship), meaning drawing with a pen. Only natural dyes are used in kalamkari and it involves seventeen steps.
Started originally in the Sasani era in Iran (almost 2500 years ago), there are two distinctive styles of kalamkari art in India – the Srikalahasti style and the Machilipatnam style. The Srikalahasti style of kalamkari (Kalankari), wherein the “kalam” or pen is used for freehand drawing of the subject and filling in the colours, is entirely hand worked.
