File name

Hand Printed Cotton Fabric

From Heritage Trading Company

The village of Bagru is one of Rajasthan’s historic block printing centers. Craftsmen use hand carved wooden blocks to stamp designs onto the cloth. In keeping with Bagru’s centuries’ old tradition, this fabric was printed with all natural dyes.

Printing Fabric With Traditional Wooden Block Flowers & Leaves Used To Make Dye

If you like the style of Provence in Southern France, you'll be interested to know that these block prints are "Les Indiennes," the imported Indian cottons that inspired the French to develop their famous Provencal fabrics, beginning in the 17th century. Cotton prints from India were also popular in Britain and America.

With their historic background, block print fabrics may be just what you need for your SCA, LARP, Renaissance Faire, Civil War, reenactor, or other reproduction, period costumes. Or use them for period home furnishings.

Using carved wooden blocks in a traditional floral design, a resist was printed onto beige cotton fabric. The fabric was then immersed in gray dye. After drying, the resist was washed away, leaving the beige motif on a gray background.

Natural dyes were used in this piece.

Motif Color: Natural Beige Background Color: Gray Fabric Width: 44 Inches (1.1 Meters) Fabric Length: 2½ Yards (2.3 Meters) Fabric: Light Weight Cotton

This fabric is brand new, not "vintage." In other words, it's not used, damaged, or dirty. It is, however, folk art. Because of the way it's produced, the pattern is not perfectly uniform and there may be some errant spots of dye. If your project needs greater precision, you'll be better off with machine printed textiles.
