Kalamkaari with asymmetrical patchwork of cotton
Spoken for
Kalamkari of Srikalahasthi has always charmed my heart. I custom designed panels of kalamkari with the artisan Subbarao to be able to achieve this effect of flowing asymmetry of panels.

Kaari is 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. Kaari comes with a blouse fabric designed to encourage mora fireflies to bring their own authentic spirit to the fabrication of blouse fit, usage of borders and edgings.

Blouse worn by Nikita is not included.

“To a physicist, beauty means symmetry and simplicity. If a theory is beautiful, this means it has a powerful symmetry that can explain a large body of data in the most compact, economical manner. More precisely, and equation is considered to be beautiful if it remains the same when we interchange its components among themselves.”
