The art of drawing with a pen on silk using painting techniques is the beauty of this silk Kalamkari. The base is black with painted designs in deep Carnelian Red . Pure silk checks with thin gold lines form the front and sleeves. The sleeves were embroidered in vermillion , chilly red , bits of fuchsia and ivory with traditional motifs from the village tribes. The Khun borders line the mandarin collar and sleeve edges. The motifs are mostly inspired by nature and also ancient folk art and traditions. The dyes used are naturally extracted from various roots , leaves and barks…….seeped with buffalo milk and “Myrobalan”. As we work with this fabric and stud it with mirrors to highlight the motifs at the back we realize we have now grown to love the smell of buffalo milk on the natural kalamkari fabric . This is the most elegant and classy piece to style with almost all types of silk sarees with earthen shades. Its unique and a single piece handmade with all our love.
