Originally practiced in the temple towns of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Kalamkari gained recognition for its exquisite depictions of mythological stories and intricate motifs.

The process involves various stages, including preparing the fabric, outlining the design with a pen or kalam, applying natural dyes, and adding intricate details through hand-painting or block printing.
