Kalamkari or Qalamkari is a type of hand-painted or block-printed cotton textile, produced in parts of India. The word is derived from thePersian words ghalam (pen) and kari (craftmanship), meaning drawing with a pen (Ghalamkar).

The Machilipatnam Kalamkari craft made at Pedana near by Machilipatnam in Krishna districtAndhra Pradesh, evolved with patronage of the Mughals and the Golconda sultanate.

There are two distinctive styles of kalamkari art in India - the Srikalahasti style and the Machilipatnam style. The Srikalahasti style of Kalamkari, wherein the "kalam" or pen is used for free hand drawing of the subject and filling in the colors, is entirely hand worked. This style flowered around temples and their patronage and so had an almost religious identity - scrolls, temple hangings, chariot banners and the like, depicted deities and scenes taken from the Hindu epics - RamayanaMahabarataPuranas and the mythological classics
