DABU DOUBLE HAND BLOCK PRINT COTTON FABRIC
**Colours may vary slightly due to the difference between a digital and a fabric colour**
Dabu is a mud-resist hand-block printing practiced in Rajasthan, India. It is a tedious process involving a number of steps and the use of natural dyes. This unique form of printing is also environmentally non-toxic as it uses no harmful or synthetic dyes. Dabu, or mud, is used to block colours on the fabric before dyeing leading to the distinct patterns on the fabrics. A variety of designs are used to decorate the fabric, including geometric prints, flowers or small animals. Traditionally, dabu prints were only found in grey colours and tones (a muddy-clay colour), but now the patterns have migrated to newer colours - especially indigo.
Fabric: 100% Cotton
Width: 44 inches
Care Instructions: Natural dyes are used in printing all the designs in this fabric, so minimal colour bleeding is observed in the first and second wash. For the same reason, separate hand wash and/or salt water soak is recommended. For long-lasting bright colours, do not dry under direct sunlight. No shrinkage is observed.
Note: As it is a hand block printed fabric with natural dyes, there can be slight irregularities in the fabric in terms of the block/colour. However, this is the beauty of the fabric and the authenticity of the art itself.
