Bharatsthali kalamkari dupatta online: Weave a magical story for your wardrobe
Apart from bringing you the collection of hand-painted kalamkari sarees and blouses, we bring you the selection of Kalamkari dupatta and stoles that make you the protagonist of the story you want to live and tell. Kalamkari came into existence with the wandering mystics, painters and folk singers who would travel from one place to another, telling stories to the commoners. These stories were translated into pictures on clothes using the best means available for drawing and colouring, which were tamarind twig and colours derived from plants or fruits.

The art of kalamkari isn’t a new-age phenomenon. However, the glossy dupattas are. The traces of kalamkari art can be found in the fabric pieces found at the Mohenjo-daro sites, but it flourished under the Mogul reign and was referred to as qalamkari by them. The Brits also took a liking to it and no wonder, the European still swoon over kalamkari sarees and tops.
There are two types of Kalamkari art, mainly Machilipatnam and Srikalahasti. The former is a traditional block printing coupled with hand-detailing of temple architecture, wildlife, and motifs.

The GeetaGyan of Mahabharat or the wedding of Ram and Seeta, the fish and the squirrel or only abstract pattern when looked into may translate into the tree of life or sometimes don’t make sense at all-kalamkari is the celebration of life from every walk of life. An ancient style of handpainting gets the much-needed contemporary makeover with Bharatsthali dupatta. Kalamkari translates into the craftsmanship of pen. The ancient art of hand painting done with a tamarind pen using natural dyes, the craft involves almost twenty-three steps of dyeing, block-printing, bleaching, and drying and so on. The paintings often tell a mythological story of divine characters or take a cue from nature.
The latter, however, is the coherent and more directform of kalamkari that has epics from mythology and folklore depicted on the fabric. While the Machilipatnam style of Kalamkari originated in the Machilipatnam district of Andhra Pradesh, the Srikalahasti is done in Gujarat.
