Celebrate The Indian Tradition And Heritage With The Best Of Kalamkari Weavers - Dwaraka Plus

Kalamkari is one of India’s oldest forms of art. It is ingrained in the Indian culture and heritage, among many other art forms. First, let’s discuss the meaning of Kalamkari. The literal translation of ‘kalam’ is a pen, and that of ‘Kari’ is art. A kalamkari is an art form that involves hand printing or block-printing on pieces of fabrics like cotton. One of the best features about Kalamkari is that it is a sustainable practice as it employs natural or vegetable dyes. 

The central hub of the Kalamkari industry in Andhra Pradesh, especially in the Srikalahasti and Machilipatnam regions and a few other smaller regions in this state. Kalamkari started as an occupation for the rural women of Andhra Pradesh and later passed on to further generations. At present, Kalamkari is not only in demand in the whole country but internationally as well.
