Kalamkari literally means, Kalam – pen & kari – work, i.e., artwork done using a pen. Vegetable dyes are used to colour the designs applied on cloth. The art of painting using organic dyes on cloth was popular in several parts of India, but this style of Kalamkari flourished at Kalahasti (80 miles north of Chennai) and at Masulipatnam (200 miles east of Hyderabad).
This art can be used for both wall paintings/decorative items as well as fabric design as well.
