Kalamkari is a combination of two words, Kalam and Kari. This term means work done using a pen. As its name implies, a picture is designed on a piece of cloth using a pen filled with a particular color. This pen was made of bamboo reed and vegetable dyes were used for colors. According to an Indian handicraft manufacturer, it flourished during the rule of Golconda Sultan. At that time, a large group of painters, singers and musicians were used to traveling to different villages to tell stories about Hindu mythological characters. They used paintings to illustrate these stories. That is how Kalamkari was born.

There are two styles of Kalamkari, allowing it to preserve a significant place among Indian handicrafts. The first one is the Srikalahasti style in which a pen or Kalam is used for freehand drawing and color is filled. This style mainly focuses on the temples and Hindu mythology characters from Ramayana, Mahabharata, Bhagavata Geeta, and Purana. The second style is Machilipatnam in which outlines and main details are carved in the block and later, fine details are done using a pen.
