Artisan: Kalamkari Artisans in India

Artisan Kalamkari Artisans in India

In the bustling temple town of Srikalahasthi, India, artisans are rejuvenating the tradition of Kalamkari art while building economic stability and opportunity in their own lives. The Development of Weavers and Rural Artisans in Kalamkari Art (DWARAKA) works with up to 300 artisans, training them in Kalamkari art and providing courses in English language, computers, design, marketing and finance.

Named for the kalam, the pen with which these patterns are created, the unique art form of Kalamkari is part of a 400 year old artistic heritage originally created both for decoration and religious ornamentation. Eco-friendly by its very nature, the lengthy process incorporates specialized dyeing, hand-painting, and block printing with vegetable dyes. Extra attention is required at every stage of the process, ensuring an expression of artistic technique unique to the region of India where it was developed -- perhaps unlike any other being practiced today.

DWARAKA's main objective has always been to empower its artisans. Since their inception, they've helped artisans build self-reliance and self-identity, breaking through caste and gender oppression and exploitation.

Artisan Ganga

At the young age of 15, Ganga found herself burdened with the responsibility of protecting and providing for her family financially. Standing tall in the face of adversity, Ganga found employment with DWARAKA and began to learn, and excel, in painting Kalamkari. With the wages she now earns regularly, Ganga has been able to help her family rebuild their home and rise out of poverty. She is even able to support her sister so that she can go to college.

Artisan Kanchana

Kanchana is the youngest member of a family of weavers. Though weaving had been a long-standing tradition and the means of livelihood for the family, they could no longer earn enough to support themselves and found themselves in a large amount of debt. Kanchana, a gifted natural artist, approached DWARAKA to see if she could learn Kalamkari.

Since then, Kanchana has become a confident and accomplished Kalamkari artist with a natural flair for design and colors, and has produced some of DWARAKA's best works. With her steady income, she has cleared her family's debts. In 2008, she was honored with the prestigious Smt Kamala Chattopadhyaya award for her skills as an artisan.
