The contours of chosen subject is drawn with a point in bamboo soaked in a mixture of jagri fermented & water; after its application the vegetable dyes are applied. After applying each color, the Kalamkari is washed. Thus, each fabric undergoes through at least 3-4 washings. Various effects are obtained by using cow dung, seeds, plants, crushed flowers, rusted iron, indigo etc. Now days the kalamakari has spread its wings from wall paintings to other products such as Stoles & Scarves, Bags, Dupattas, Cushions & Throws, Table, Decor, and Stationary.
