Description

These textiles have been created with traditional techniques used in Rajasthan for centuries. Gold and Silver printing as a decorative finish was a common feature in Traditional Indian Textiles and is still a popular way to embellish both printed and dyed fabrics. Using a Brass Stencil and Plunger, the motif is hand-printed onto the cloth with a gum paste and dusted over with a Cotton Pouch. The powder adheres to the fabric wherever the paste is present. All these dyes are used in combination with Dabu Mud resist printing.

We recommend washing before use to remove any excess dye. Hand wash separately in cold water. Dry out of direct sunlight. Do not soak.
