Calicut (Kozhikode)
       
A bustling city and commercial capital of Malabar, Calicut has an International Airport, University, Medical College and prestigious  Indian Institute of Management and National Institute of Technology(NIT)

Calicut has a very colourful past. Vasco da Gama landed at Calicut (Kappad - 16 KM from the city) in 1498, becoming the first European to reach India by  the sea route around the southern cape of Africa. 
 
His arrival heralded the period of Portuguese supremacy in India and the history of Calicut after 1498 was certainly dramatic. The Portuguese attempted to conquer the town, the capital of Malabar under the Zamorins, or lords of the sea.

CALICO

Calico, a plain-weave cotton fabric commonly printed with simple, two-colored designs or patterns and used to make colorful dresses and shirts. 

The fabric, one of the oldest textiles known, originated as a fine weave in Calicut, India, for which it was named. 

Calicoes were first imported into Europe from India during the Renaissance and have since been manufactured in both Europe and the United States. Calico was especially popular in America during the 19th century..
