India, Dheeraj Chhipa, Kangura Stole
The product is hand-block printed in natural dyes. The motifs and process of this product follows the traditional Bagru printing methods but has been incorporated in a contemporary piece. It was printed in Bagru village near Jaipur, in Rajasthan, India by Dheeraj Chhipa and his team.
The product is special since it uses the traditional technique of printing with natural dye pigment on a mordant base which is then finished through a washing and curing process that fixes the natural colours to the cloth. The natural pigments are not easily available in the market and the printer/designer makes all pigments from scratch.
The blocks used for printing are nearly 40-50 years old, hand-carved with motifs derived from the 400 year old repertoire of Bagru prints.
