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.

Extremely Well Made
Sep 1, 2022  |  By Nancy Thorgaard
Many years ago I used to sew my own clothes. I no longer do that but I have an eye for quality now. This top is EXTREMELY well made! All the seams are sewn under. There are no sloppy areas. Colors/design is aligned. This is a great top if you're looking for something comfortable!

Very roomy

This is a very generous size. The 1x-2x was adequate and I usually wear a 3x.

Fabulous shirt!
Oct 18, 2022  |  By Sandra Smith
This shirt is wonderful. I wear it with leggings, and it's a flattering length. The cotton is a bit more substantial than many of my Marketplace India items, and good for fall. The pattern and colors are lovely, and construction is excellent. I purchased my usual size and it is nicely oversized but not too much.
