Traditional Kalamkari art mainly depicts scenes from Hindu mythology created mainly for use in temples with richly embellished figures of deities. The art form was subsequently further influenced under islamic rule in the Deccan region and started including Persian motifs and designs as well. The artists use a bamboo or date palm stick pointed at one end with a bundle of fine hair attached to this pointed end to serve as the brush or pen. The outlines and main features are done using hand carved blocks and finer details are completed using the pen. Vegetable dyes are extracted using colours from plants along with mineral salts of iron, tin, copper, alum and so on. The beauty fo Kalamkari and its unique appeal lies in its mellow appearance in spite of bright colours being used in the print. These prints lend themselves extremely well to regular washing.

Kalamkari

Andhra Pradesh and parts of Tamil Nadu have been the seat of Kalamkari art over centuries. Traditional Kalamkari art mainly depicts scenes from Hindu mythology created mainly for use in temples, with richly embellished figures of deities. The art form was subsequently further influenced under Muslim rule in the Deccan region and started including Persian motifs and designs as well. Further, Karrupur is a style of Kalamkari that developed in the Thanjavur region during the Maratha rule and was extensively used in garments by royalty. The artists use a bamboo or date palm stick pointed at one end with a bundle of fine hair attached to this pointed end to serve as the brush or pen. The outlines and main features are done using hand carved blocks and finer details are completed using the pen. Vegetable dyes are extracted using colours from plants along with mineral salts of iron, tin, copper, alum and so on. The beauty of Kalamkari and its unique appeal lies in its mellow appearance in spite of bright colours being used in the print. These prints lend themselves extremely well to regular washing.
