Material: Tie Dye and Daboo Printed 100% Cotton Fabric
Dabu or daboo is an ancient mud resist hand block printing technique from Rajasthan. The practice almost died out in the last century but was revived and is today a flourishing business in many villages of Rajasthan. Dabu printing is very labor intensive and involves several stages of printing and dyeing; the end result is therefore very unique and beautiful. Mud resist printing is a special variation, the origins of which can be traced to about 675 A.D. Today it is commonly acknowledged that the village of Akola, in the Chittorgarh district of Rajasthan, is the originator of the unique Daboo printing style which uses mud resists. The dyes used are natural.
The tie and dye printing technique in India is as old as 5000 years. As the name suggests, the work involves tying and dyeing of fabrics. The colours used in tie and dye are generally bright and contrasting. There are various patterns of tie and dye work such as leheriya and bandhni, which are the basic ones. The ‘Leheriya’ tie and dye is in a wave or ripple pattern,representing waves of the sea, running diagonally on the cloth. Usually two colour patterns are used in leheriya. These colours alternate each other in the form of waves. The dyes used are natural.
