  • CRAFT TECHNIQUE: Paper recycling + book making + Dabu blockprint inspiration

     

    DABU printing is an ancient mud-resist hand block printing technique. The Dabu method is the most commonly practiced in Rajasthan, although there are several variations of mud-resist techniques.

     

    INDIGO is a highly revered dye among the craftsmen. They believe that a cow that drinks the solution becomes stronger and that if they eat with Indigo-stained hands, there won’t be any problems with the food or digestion. They say that Indigo has the power to turn anything natural. Using Indigo dyed fabric is thereby considered auspicious.
