India’s tryst with craftsmanship is showcased in the exquisite collection of Kalamkari at Angadi Silks.
An ancient art, Kalamkari traces its origins to travelling artistes who illustrated the grand tales of the Mahabharata and the Ramayana on reams of canvas. They infused their sketches with earthy, natural dyes that brought their drawings to life. Even today, you can witness the vibrancy of these hues in the Kalamkari sarees at Angadi Silks.
Crafting a Kalamkari saree is no easy task. Made from the cotton, the making of the Kalamkari involves 17 steps. The yards of fabric are first soaked in milk before the outlines are traced onto it. Then it bathes in natural pigments before being hand-painted.
Over the course of its 600-year history, Angadi Silks has perfected the art of the Kalamkari. We combine this centuries-old art form with modern aesthetics to give you stunning sarees that occupy pride of place in your wardrobe.
