This is our heavy weight 100% organic cotton. The cloth has been hand block printed with natural dyes by skilled "Dabu" block printers in Rajasthan. One of our favourite weights of cotton for pants, work shirts, jackets and interiors.
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.
