Écharpe en coton et soie, teint et imprimé à la main avec des couleurs naturelles et Dabu (technique de résistance à la boue), fabriqué par la communauté de la caste Chhipa. Elle embrasse l'ancienne tradition d'impression de Bagru et "parle" de sa culture et de ses gens.


Les styles ethniques sont l’expression d’un mode de vie. Ils sont pensés par des individus dont l’héritage est ancré dans la communauté plutôt que centré sur l’appartenance de terres, et sont considérés comme des biens culturels.

  • CRAFT TECHNIQUE: Dabu Blockprint

     

    BAGRU, a town at the outskirts of Jaipur, in Rajasthan is one of the textile hubs of India. It is known for centuries for its natural dyeing, Syahi Begar printing, indigo dyeing and wooden hand block printing. Since at least 400 years, Bagru has been home to the Chhipa clan. If combining two Nepal Bhasa words, chhi means "to dye" and pa means “to leave something to bask in sun”.

     

    DABU is a mud resist mixture made from local black clay, wheat powder, guar gum, and lime water. After the printer applies the dabu print pattern, a fine layer of sawdust is sprinkled over the fabric to help prevent it from sticking to itself during the dye process. The motifs made with the mud resist remain uncolored while the rest of the fabric is dyed.

     

    At BAGRU TEXTILES, at least sixteen families work regularly as master printers, dyers, block carvers, dhobiwalas (laundry people), and designers. A portion of Bagru Textiles's profits support community initiatives for the entire Chhipa community.
