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.

Love it too!

I love the fit, the style and the comfort. I would suggest you know your measurements for this site, and go by the garment measurements and not depend on basic USA sizing. If you do that, you won't be disappointed, you can go with the over sized look, or get the size that is more fitting. I always have problems at other stores due to inconsistency with sizing, but here you see the garment measurements and get it right every time! I love that!!!

Pleasant Surprise

Like all of my garments from MarketPlace, I love the new addition. It fits well, looks good, and is easy to take care of. It also lends itself to conversion from daytime casual to a fancier setting.
