India has a rich history of hand-block-printed, natural-dyed trade textiles since the 18th century & the skill is still widely practiced today. The term “Kalamkari” was originally meant for hand-painted textiles from the region of Machilipatnam, Andhra Pradesh. When the demand for trade textiles grew in the late 17th - 18th century, Persian block-carvers were called by the East India Company to adopt “Kalamkari” motifs into block-printed “Chintz”. At Creative Bee, after years of research & experimentation, we have mastered the printing techniques, recipes of natural dye print pastes, fixing techniques & all other related hand-processes to produce some of the finest hand-printed, natural dyed and hand-woven textiles.
