Kalamkari:

The word Kalamkari is derived from a Persian word where 'kalam' means pen and 'kari' refers to craftsmanship. Initially Kalamkari fabrics were hand painted but today wooden carved blocks are used. Kalamkari textiles were a prized trading commodity throughout Asia and Europe for hundreds of years. This traditional art has survived among dedicated artisans in southern India who follow the age–old techniques and natural dye recipes of this painstaking process. The process can involve 23 steps each requiring precision and an eye for detailing.

I just love this dress. It fits perfect. The colors and the embroidery details are very beautiful. I got the dress on Labor Day in the afternoon. The artist did a beautiful job on the dress.

Terrific dress!
Sep 24, 2021  |  By Lorraine Jacobs
The pockets! They are substantial and I really love pockets. I ordered a small. It is loose fitting on me and perhaps a little too big. I'm 5'7", 135lbs but it still looks great and I love it! The fabric is comfortable and the embroidery lovely.
