Mud Block Printing in Jaipur

From the Jaipur Office

Yesterday we were off out to a small village that specializes in mud block
 printing called Dabu. This was so much fun.

Printing with mud - first design

Second one metre piece being printed

 Sprinkle the block with sawdust

This keeps the dye off even more than the mud resist

One design finished

Into the indigo dye vat

A sample straight out of the dye vat and below watching the colour change 
from greeny blue to blue

It goes even darker as the air oxidizes it.

Fabric drying in the sun

After printing we wandered around the village and felt totally immersed in Indian Village life
