Character:

Kalamkari

A naturally dyed, thin cotton shawl, block printed in the the kalamkari style in Andhra Pradesh. 

Material : cotton
Style : kalamkari
Motif : floral
Main colors : sandy beige
Kalamkarti print colors : maroon, navy blue,  olive drab, old gold and black
Size : 92 by 47 in (230 by 118 cm)
Weight : about 200 g

The color combination is extremely vibrant, yet muted since all dyes used on this shawl come from natural sources, such as turmeric, indigo, madder and other plants native to Andhra Pradesh, India. The softness of color imparted by natural vegetable dyes is unique and unmistakable. 

It is perfect for meditation or savasana. Its large size offers ample surface to cover any practitioner; its lightness and softness keeps you comfortably warm without the oppressive feeling created by heavier fabrics. It is also extremely compact and will hardly take any space in your bag. Extremely versatile, it can easily serve as a wrap or a shawl for informal occasions. 

The ends of the shawl are left unfinished in traditional Andhra Pradesh kalamkari style For the first time wash the garment separately, in cold water. The principal color might bleed slightly during the first wash only. This situation is common to all hand-dyed fabrics, and does not occur during the later washes. In order to prolong the life of the shawl avoid using dryers. 

This shawl has been created, in Andhra Pradesh, by one of the last Indian communities that uses exclusively natural dyes, for block printing in kalamkari style. All of our products are hand-made, and as in most human endeavors imperfections occur. They are an integral part of the gesture and the signature of the artisan.
