Kalamkari-The Art of Painting fabric with a Pen-4

Well, Kalamkari art is used on saris, dupattas, scarves, stoles. Both block printing variety and hand painted are used. Chudidar or Shalwar Kameez sets are also being sold. Ready made shirts for men are also available. Apart form these, bedlinen, hand kerchiefs, fabric lengths are also available. patches and borders are also available in various sizes and still are popular.

The fabric is used as cover for books, dairies, folders, bags, and many others. I will post my collection but before that, here is something unique. 

Jewellery made out of Kalmkari paper from Deepa Sekar. They are so pretty.
