Kalamkaari with asymmetrical patchwork of cotton | Dupatta
Spoken for
Panels of Kalamkaari created by Subbarao at Sri Kalahasthi flow in a geometry of harmonious colour palette.

Gajini is a one-of-a-kind textile designed to highlight a unique coming together of various techniques and creativity of handcraft. This design will not be recreated.



There is really nothing more to say - except why. But since why is difficult to handle, one must take refuge in how.

—Toni Morrison
