This beautiful intricately handoven kalamkari took many months to make. For the very first time , I am introducing a fusion of Odisha handloom silk saree on which Kalamkari work have been depicted. This represents our undying passion to create beautiful pieces of art to preserve the handloom legacy of our states.
Kalamkari fans would know this is a modest price for the extreme hard work involved in the saree making process. Such a custom made fusion saree would easily sell for much higher cost.
Kalamkari, indigenous to Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states, is an ancient Indian artform using a pen dipped in natural colors. Peacock, paisleys, flowers and divine characters from Hindu epics like Mahabharata and Ramayana are the primary theme of Kalamkari painting. There are 2 distinct styles of Kalamkari in the present day - Srikalahasthi, which comprises of pen Kalamkari, and block printed or screen printed Kalamkari in Machilipatnam. All the sarees presented here have been hand-picked from authentic Kalamkari suppliers from SriKalahasthi.
This saree is available on pre-orders and will take upto 2 months to make.
