Natural Dye Kalamkari Tote Bag

Natural Dye Kalamkari Tote Bag

The Story: The Art of Kalamkari is an archaic and ethereal form of textile painting which has a heritage dating back to Indus valley civilization and in ancient Greece before the time of Christ. The archaeological evidences tell us that the hand painting on resists – dyed cloth was discovered in the eighth century.

The Kalamkari art of painting undergoes an ardous , slow process of resist – dyeing and hand printing. Many stages have to be undergone before the final results are achieved. Unlike other styles of painting, Kalamkari painting demands a lot of treatment before and after the painting is completed on the cotton fabric. Depending on the treatment of cloth, or quality of the mordant, the colors change accordingly. Every step from soaking of cloth, to sketching the outlines to washing and drying the cloth, is done delicately with utmost dexterity.

About Me: Using vegetable dyes and earthy hues—pomegranate reds, leaf greens, raven wing blacks and Lord Krishna blues, the nimble fingers of the artists have created this chic tote bag with great finesse. Be it with traditional attire, fusion or casual wear, carrying this bag surely makes a style statement and somewhere in our heart evokes a feeling of reverence for the ancient craft.
