Fabric - Organic Cotton Block Printed with Natural Indigo - Medium Dot


Maiwa has worked with block printed fabric for over 30 years. The cloth has been hand block printed with natural indigo by skilled "Dabu" block printers in Rajasthan, India. Light to medium weight fabric is perfect for garments and quilting. 

The technique used in this cloth is a mud-resist known as “Dabu.” A cold-water resist, Dabu is particularly effective for blocking out areas during an indigo bath. The character of Dabu and the wooden blocks used to apply it, go together to create the distinctive patterns known as “Dabu” prints.
