THE STORY
In the Persian art of kalamkari, a 'qalam' or pen made of sharpened bamboo reed, or a carved block is used to craft intricate lines that make up scenes from mythological stories, vines of stylized foliage and flowers. Painted or printed with colors extracted from fruits like haritaki and surul bark, kalamkari started life as a currency to trade spices from Southeast Asia and continues to enthrall us just as it did 3000 years ago. Painted by skilled hands, the kalamkari sarees and dupattas in this collection are hand-painted on shibori and ikat giving them a glorious craft update.
