Kelagayis are made by dipping stamps, with patterns carved out of wood, into hot wax and leaving an imprint on white silk. The silk is then dyed using a complex dyeing method. Getting the color right is a meticulous and labor-intensive process. 

In 2014 kelagayi was included in the list of intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO for its symbolism and craft.
