Summary

This article on Kalamkari sarees begins with a brief introduction on Kalamkari sarees. it touches upon various topics like origin of Kalamkari, the two types of Kalamkari and the difference between the two, the colors used in Kalamkari and the relevance of Kalamkari in today's fashion world.

Full Content

Over 3000 years ago, an art form that originated to be at the center of handicrafts and that still is the center of many a wardrobe’s attention, the Kalamkari sarees that exhibit celebrated kalamkari work which when broken into ‘kalam’ meaning pen and ‘kari’ meaning work literally means pen work.

Origin of hand painted Kalamkari Sarees: Fondly popular as the textile art, handloom Kalamkari sarees’ epicenter

was Machilipatnam also known as Masulipatnam along with Srikalahasti in Andhra Pradesh. Both these places have been influential in inspiring varied design concepts in Kalamkari sarees.

Machilipatnam Handloom Kalamkari Sarees: Older of the two places, Machilipatnam that was also for centuries, a bustling port on the eastern coast was renowned for hand painted Kalamkari sarees and from here came the ‘Tree of Life’ concept. Due to its strategic location and export trade, Masulipatnam Kalamkari sarees were open to a lot of influences, in both design and technique, from outside.

Srikalahasti Handloom Kalamkari Sarees: Srikalahasti is a well-known temple town in Andhra Pradesh that saw swarms of pilgrims every day. The designs are seen on pure kalamkari sarees from this region thus were reminiscent of religious canvasses portraying life from the two Hindu epics of Mahabharata and Ramayana. Here Kalamkari silk sarees were viewed as items to be worshiped akin to Jagannath Puripattachitras or Nathdwara picchwais.

A bright yet rustic look of hand painted Kalamkari sarees: The prime colors that take the center stage on Kalamkari sarees are red, black, blue and yellow. Made from organic materials, the main ingredient in preparing these colors are jajakku leaves and root of the madder boiled in water to acquire the natural color pigments. The kalams are, in some instances, blocks that are helpful with the outlines or in other instances, balls of yarn that are wrapped around a bamboo or a date palm stylus to design freehand style.

Relevance of Kalamkari in contemporary fashion context: Today, Kalamkari work can be seen on kalamkari silk sarees, kalamkari silk cotton and kalamkari cotton sarees. The complexity of the art that includes both printing and hand painting, with their bold busy motifs, beautiful formations inspired from Nature, vibrant colors, natural organic dyes, seem relevant even in the contemporary fashion context and continue to,one hand inspire the new generation designers and on the other, appeal the refined tastes of fashion frenzy women of today.
