Its name refers to the ancient style of hand painting that was born out of the art of storytelling. Making Kalamkari fabric involves 23-steps including treating and preparing the fabric, preparing the natural dyes and finally painting with precision and care. Our printers pre-treat the fabric to be printed with an exacting method of vegetable treatments.
