Kalamkari (kalumkaari) is an art form of hand painting or block printing normally on cotton fabrics using only vegetable dyes and natural colors. The origins of this creation can be traced back 500 odd years during the Mughal era, specifically from the state of Andhra in south India. Also known as Qalamkari meaning made with a pen, the word originates from the Persian word kalam - pen and kari - workmanship. The artists use natural colors extracted from barks, flowers and roots of plants. In fact, the red color is extracted from the Indian madder root, yellow from pomegranate seeds or even mango bark.
