Dabu or daboo originates in Rajasthan and is a beautiful mud resist hand block printing technique. It survived the test of time with some difficulty and is a time-consuming printing technique involving many phases and a great amount of labour.
Background: Supposedly, dabu printing originated in China and eventually, Rajasthan became the most popular centre of it. The designs are similar to the “batik” style of printing, but the techniques used for the two are vastly different.
Technique : A very complicated process, it involves phases of washing, hand printing, use of mud resist and drying.
Plants, flowers and different motifs are core components of this kind of block printing, and the technique is practiced in various villages in Rajasthan.
This kind of prints revolve around selective soaking of cloth in a colour and preferentially printing it using wax.
Background: It originated in Egypt and has traces of its legacy in many countries. The process includes soaking, beating, drawing of patterns, applying of wax and other techniques.
Technique: A wax-resist dyeing technique, this process is applied to the whole length of the cloth. Either a spouted tool or a copper stamp called cap is used for this.
