Hand Printed Cotton Fabric
From Heritage Trading Company
In India, the Rajasthani village of Sanganer has been known for its block print textiles since the 18th century. Hand carved wooden blocks are dipped in dye and stamped onto the stretched cloth. This process must be repeated for each color in the printed pattern. The work is done in small, family-run studios.Sanganeri craftsman uses a wooden block to print cotton fabric.
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. You can see the similarities in the vibrant colors and the small, regularly spaced motifs.
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 costumes. Or use them for period home furnishings.
Using carved wooden blocks, traditional Mughal motifs were hand printed onto this 100% cotton fabric.Print Colors: Green, Blue, Gray Background Color: White 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.
