TALES 》 Kalamkari Sarees and Fabric

India has a rich heritage of art and crafts which is mirrored in textiles, the origin of Indian textiles can be traced to the Indus valley civilization, the art which was astonishing in recent past was Kalamkari, also known as qalamkari. The name ancestry roots back in Persian from the word 'qalam' referring 'pen' and 'kari' known as 'craftsmanship', in general which means drawing with a pen. This type of hand-painted or block-printed was created on mediums such as cottons and silk textiles and was produced in India and Iran, which was much of demand across the globe. This traditional art is known for richness of colors, intricacy, design and mild blowing patterns, the temple town known as Srikalahasti is the major centre for hand-painted Kalamkari in India.

Indian Kalamkari art form exist in two distinctive styles:

  • Srikalahasti style
  • Machilipatnam style

Srikalahasti style is a variant of Kalamkari work also called as Hindu version is a gorgeous piece of art, draws inspiration from the Hindu mythology describing scenes from the epics and folklore. Srikalahasti style is used mostly to narrate and tell stories of religious myths and epics stories on the fabric. Motifs painted on this fabric are the story-boards, depicting scenes from the epics of Mahabharata, Bhagvad Gita (Mahabharata), Ramayana, Indian god and goddesses like Lord Ganesh, Vishnu, Parvati, Shri Jaganath, Buddha, Krishna (Raas-Leela), Indian temples, etc indicates the vibrancy of this craft and celebrations of Indian culture by adding rich colors.

Srikalahasti is a holy town in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh state and southeastern coast of the country, India. The temple town is a combination of traditions, customs, myths and folklore, which is famous in Srikalahasti shrine, Srikalahasti Temple is also regarded as Rahu-Ketu kshetra and Dakshina Kasi. The deity Srikalahasteeswara(Shiva) is situated in banks of fast flowing river Swarnamukhi. Swarnamukhi river only clean water flows, that is the reason the art flourished here. Both Cotton and silk medium is used for Kalamkari art.

Kalamkars use tamarind twig as pen to sketch beautiful motifs. Colors used in Kalamkari sarees are extracted from natural sources with no use of chemicals and artificial dyes. Often primary colors are used such as earthy colors like rust, black, indigo, mustard, green, pale white, etc. Mineral salts of iron, tin, copper and alum mustard(yellow) is derived by boiling pomegranate peels. Craftsmen extract black color by blending jaggery, blue is obtained from indigo and green is derived by mixing yellow and blue together. It takes around a week or couple of months to complete one saree based on the designs and patterns. The pallu is hand-painted with paisley motifs and the remaining part of the saree is plain, which enhances the entire look.

You can wear these colorful handcrafted Srikalahasti style kalamkari sarees for board meetings, art festivals, Raas (Dandiya Raas), temples, etc. If you love art or a statement piece collector than you should grab one of these in your wardrobe. Since they use more natural colors on both either cotton or silk medium, do a mild detergent wash, optionally starch and steam press ironing.
