Machilipatnam kalamkari heavily relies on nature in every step of production (there are close to 17 steps in all). The colors for printing, for instance, are extracted from vegetables, minerals and flowering plants. Signature colors used in kalamkari such as blue, red, black and yellow are derived from indigo, tamarind seeds, iron ore and turmeric respectively. These natural dyes are prepared using alum, which works as a fixing agent, preventing the dyes from running in later stages.
Wash separately and dry in shade. May bleed colour.
Difference in shade may be there due to camera lights.
Please embrace little imperfections as these are handmade/handloom products.
