Utilising only NATURAL dyes made from tree barks, flowers and roots, this fabric is also tested for colour fastness, material strength and resistance to shrinkage and wrinkles.
HAND BLOCK PRINTING has been a traditional fabric production process within India since the 12th Century. All aspects of the process are delicate and carried out by skilled artists with deftness and precision, with skills that have been passed from generation to generation. In a time when mass-production is the norm, small groups of artisans continue their ancient craft of block printing beautiful and unique fabrics.
Similar in weight to calico (or what is known as muslin in the US) at 130g/sqm, this fabric is light enough for use as a dressmaking fabric, yet heavy enough for skirts or children's clothing, and also suitable for quilting and as an upholstery fabric.
