These patterns are "kalam Kari", a term which denotes both a style and a very ancient printing technique of applying colors using hand-carved wooden blocks - formerly styluses. There are as many blocks as there are colors. These colors are all natural dyes, made from fermented natural pigments like seeds, pomegranate… Applied with the blocks – which work like stamps – these colors will be revealed like magic when the fabric is washed in the river water. Then the fabric dries in the sun.

Depending on the quality of the water - which should be "neither too sweet nor too low" as they say - the intensity of the sun, the season - monsoon or not - the pattern will be different. It is a know-how that is passed on from generation to generation. Today it is Nanni who orchestrates the workshop, Nanni who dropped his computer engineering studies to take over from his father a few years ago. Nanni who fights for this know-how to remain intact and continue.
