Kalamkari is a block-printing technique involving many steps and all natural dyes- including madder root, avocado, pomegranate, iron and indigo. Natural dyes are alive and will continue to bleed and fade over time.
In ancient times, kalamkari was used to tell stories of Hindu mythology on large canvases. These very old blocks were chosen from a traditional printer in India and then re-interpreted to fit the color story. As the fabric is printed, the colors bleed, resulting in a romantic antique white as the basis of the design.
