India, Dheeraj Chhipa, Turri Patasi Saree
The technique of printing is called PHADAT which is a 400 year old printing process. Phadat printing is one among the languishing hand-blocking printing techniques in India, and is exclusive to the village of Bagru, in Rajashtan where it originates. It was traditionally printed on textiles used by women of the local communities for their skirts.
The saree has been printed with the traditional technique as today a saree is a unstitched garment worn by many women across India and abroad as it is a popular product.
It has been printed in Bagru village of Rajasthan, India by Dheeraj Chhipa and his team
This product is special in that this technique has always been printed in Cotton since the process is cumbersome and difficult to handle on a lighter material. But, the printer has translated the entire process on SILK which is a tough fabric to work with resit dyeing printing techniques.
A silk saree in Phadat print is very rare today.
It is special also because the Phadat printing technique is 400 years old and it originates from Bagru village in India.
