Kalamkari is the art of painting cotton fabrics with a kalam (literally kalam means pen and kari, art), a sharp pointed bamboo stick padded with hair or cotton and tied with a string on one end to regulate the flow of color.
Baladarshan orders a range of products made out kalamkari from different producers groups in South India, especially groups of socially marginalized women (widows, destitute, HIV affected, physically challenged women).
The fabrics being used for bedspreads and furnishing, Baladarshan can supply Kalamkari fabric in bulk. Hundreds of different designs are available.
