Being an ancient art form, Kalamkari is a beautiful handpainted fabric. The word Kalam means pen and Kari means art, so the name Kalamkari is of Persian origin. This is an ancient art form that is practiced in various parts of Masulipattinam and Srikalasthi in Andhra Pradesh.
This is an art of hand-painting that uses organic dyes and colors. Here the artisans of the Masulipattinam use the block-based print form but the artisans of the Srikalahasthi are famous for their freehand drawing that uses pen and painting pictures from Hindu mythology.
