In ancient India, stories traveled from village to village through word-of-mouth until they eventually began taking a different form, appearing as illustrations on fabric. This art form thrived under the patronage of the wealthy Golconda sultanate, and under the Mughals who were heavily influenced by Persian art forms. Today, kalamkari art is practiced by families in Andhra Pradesh.
