Dabu or Daboo is an ancient Rajasthani mud-resist technique employed for more than 1300 years in India. Dabu is derived from the word ‘dabaana’ meaning to press. Dabu printing is a traditional printing technique from Rajasthan, India. In this process, a paste made of mud, gum and lime is applied on the fabric in a desired pattern using hand-carved wooden blocks. The fabric is then dyed in indigo, which penetrates the parts of the fabric not covered by the mud paste, resulting in a resist-dyed pattern. Dabu block print is a labor-intensive craft that includes multiple stages of washing and printing.
The indigo pattern on the stole is intricate and unique, featuring a combination of geometric and floral motifs. The design is inspired by traditional Rajasthani art and is sure to add a touch of ethnic charm to any outfit.
Eco-Friendliness and Cultural Preservation
One of the great things about Dabu stoles is that they are environmentally friendly and sustainable. The natural materials used in the printing process are biodegradable, and the cotton or silk fabric used is a renewable resource. Additionally, the hand-block printing process supports local communities and helps to preserve traditional techniques.
