Chanderi Kalamkari sarees are amongst the most beautiful, classic and comfortable sarees. These are very light-weight and are made of premium quality chanderi fabric . Kalamkari is a type of hand-painted or block-printed cotton textile, meaning drawing with a pen.
The cotton fabric gets its glossiness by immersing it in a mixture of Myrobalans and cow milk. Contours and reasons are then drawn with a point in bamboo soaked in a mixture of jagri fermented and water; then the vegetable dyes. After applying each color on to the motif, the Kalamkari fabric is washed after drying. Thus, each fabric undergoes upto 20 washes. Various effects are obtained by using cow dung, seeds, plants and crushed flowers to obtain natural dye.
