Dabu comes from the Hindi word ‘Dabana’ which means ‘to press’. Legend has it, that once a cloth dyer was, as usual, busy with his cloth dying process. Accidently he put mud- speckled clothing to dye in Indigo. But these mud-soaked clothes retained their colours the next day when they were put to dry. And that accident saw the birth of Dabu.
Dabu comes from the Hindi word ‘Dabana’, Dabana means press. The motifs floral or geometric are hand blocked in a very tedious process. The specially prepared water-resistant clay is blocked intto the textile to grasp and retain the original color during the process of dying at different stages.at different stages to retain and safeguard the basic colour after the additional dye dips.The village of Akola, in the Chittorgarh district of Rajasthan, is said to be the originator of Dabu printing.
Rajasthani hand block prints like Sanganeri and Bagru is often paired with Dabu but is in fact quite different in terms of its look and method. Block printing is actually carving the desired motifs, patterns, using wooden blocks. So the block is dipped in ink or dye, stamped onto the textile/ fabric. Though its sounds very simple but it’s rather a tedious job. Each block can only be covered in ink or dye of a single color.
