This beautiful print is manually applied to the cotton fabric with wooden stamps. A piece of art. The finish of this blouse is sublime with subtle details. A creation of the clothing label Rias .
Only a very limited number of copies of this blouse are available. The printing of the motif on the fabric is done with wooden stamps. That happens in the open air. The (block) printers make their own paint, dip the wooden block (in which the print motif is carved) into the paint and print it on the cotton fabric. This has to be done very precisely and the paint has to dry quickly. Usually the latter is not a problem, because in Jaipur, where the block printers work, it usually rains very little. But not in the rainy season of 2020! This season is was raining cats and dogs. The result was that the humidity was very high, the paint dried poorly and even started to run. The number of meters of fabric that could be printed for this blouse was therefore only limited.
With this blouse you really have a unique item!
The cotton of the blouse is hand woven in the Murshidabad district of West Bengal. The weavers of West Bengal are unsurpassed in their art of weaving. The very finely woven cotton is called muslin.
The textile dye used is environmentally friendly (AZO-free dye).
