Kalamkari, kalam (pen in persian) and kari (craftmanship).Andhra Pradesh craft evolved during Mughals & the Golconda sultanate. The "kalam" is used for free hand drawing of the subject and filling in the colours, is entirely hand worked. Only natural dyes are used. It's done only when there is sunlight as these paintings are dried in direct sunlight.
