Kalamkari refers to a method of painting

natural dyes onto cotton or silk fabric with a

bamboo pen or kalam.

The name kalamkari translates as pen (kalam)

work (kari) in Hindi/Urdu.

The name kalamkari is synonymous with both

painted and hand blockprinted textiles that

incorporate natural vegetable/organicallyderived

dye stuffs.

While there are many forms of humans and

flora and fauna throughout India and the

world, but the forms of jewellery have never

been explored. Also most of the times

Kalamkari is used as an overall design on

products and not as placement motifs.

Batik is a form of art prevalent since ancient times and it is

fundamentally a textile art that involves a specialized

method which can be called a 'resist process' of dyeing a

fabric, usually cotton or silk. In simple words, we can

define Batik as a way of putting coloured designs on a

piece of cloth with different colour dyes using a special

technique by which specific parts of the fabric remain

unaffected by the dye.

‘Batik’ itself is believed to be an Indonesian-Malay word

derived from the word ‘ Ambatik’ which literally means

‘a cloth with little dots.

The key centre of Batik is India and after the Indian

country; Indonesia is considered the main centre of batik.

Knitting is the art of fashioning fabric from a series of

interlocking threads using a pair of needles. It has been

practised for thousands of years.

Knitting ,mimics nothing in nature. There must first be

loops on the stick, then a second stick to draw a new

loop through each loop just before you drop it, creating

a flat fabric structure that is flexible in every direction.

This is genius, plain and simple.

Since the earliest times needles and yarns have been

used to make beautiful works of art. As man developed

so did his skill with the needle, designs were introduced

, techniques and structures were invented, yarns and

threads were spun and fabrics of all descriptions were

knitted.

“Crochet “ word is derived from the French word

"crochet", meaning hook. Lis Paludan theorizes that

crochet evolved from traditional practices in Arabia,

South America, or China, but there is no decisive

evidence of the craft being performed before its

popularity in Europe during the 19th century. In the

19th century, as Ireland was facing the Great Irish

Famine (1845-1849), crochet lace work was

introduced as a form of famine relief .

The brand “Pratyabhijna”

(meaning ‘recognition 'in

Sanskrit) will revamp the

current image that exists in

India today of crochet. The

brand will bolster the image

of crochet, moving it from

an underutilized technique

to a more commercialized

form of art, in crochet home

furnishings This will be done

purely by hand, to revive the

craft.
