This is a Dry Clean Only product. Since this is a hand painted Pillow each kalamkari panel will have some pencil marks and colour spills. We believe this shows the process that goes behind making this piece of art and adds to the appeal of Kalamkari.
This Srikalahasti style of Kalamkari, wherein the "kalam" or pen is used for free hand drawing of the subject and filling in the colours, is entirely hand worked.
This style flowered around temples in Andhra Pradesh, India and so had an almost religious identity - scrolls, temple hangings, chariot banners and the like, depicted deities and scenes taken from the great Hindu epics - Ramayana. Mahabarata, Puranas and the mythological classics.
Only natural dyes are used in Kalamkari and it involves seventeen painstaking steps alternating between dyeing and painted each color at a time. The Kalamkari panel used here has been painted by National Award Winning Craftsmen of Andhra Pradesh. I absolutely love this piece and hope it finds a lovely rich and spiritual home!
