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
