Mud resist printing
The mud resist printing technique is a very old and authentic method from India. Mud resist printing is a resist dyeing process applied to the finished textile, following the screen print method. The graphic design of this scarf is manually printed following authentic mud resist technique. Using mud the artisan applies the artwork directly on the fabric to resist dye. After multiply dipped in natural indigo the scarf is washed in cold water to remove the mud and the artwork appears on the scarf. Due to the manual printing and indigo dyeing process, imperfection occurs on the printed artwork that marks the unique appearance of each single item.
To get a deep dark blue colour, the weaving yarns are dipped about 10 to 20 times in a vat of indigo. The more the yarns are dipped in the natural indigo, the darker the blue colour will get. During the dyeing process, no chemicals are added. General wear, use and wash will fade the colour and each product will gain its unique appearance by time.
