Majorly found in Hyderabad this is a type of hand painting or block-printing on clothes. There are two types of kalamkari art in India - the Srikalahasti style and the Machilipatnam style. The Srikalahasti style uses a pen for freehand drawing of the subject and filling in the colors. Machilipatnam style uses wooden blocks for the creation of different designs. Both of these styles flowered around temples and their patronage and so had an almost religious identity - with deities and scenes taken from the Hindu epics - Ramayana, Mahabharata, Puranas and the mythological classics.
