Kalamkari Embroidery



       Here are a few captures from Kalamkari Sale at Bangalore. The guy selling this allowed me to click these :) . These sarees were definitely a treat to my eyes. Kalamkari patches are fixed to the saree surface and  embellishments are worked using AAri. I loved the intricate work done on the white saree. I have bought the peacock patches on the white saree. I am planning to get this made from some artisan . I will definitely not be able to do such a wonderful piece of work!! I would like to try my hands on a smaller version though. I have bought  a few smaller peacocks too. Lakshmi had sent a few "Hamsas" to me as  part of a give away in January. I haven't done anything with those yet :(.
