Origin & Technique:

Mulmul is a type of woven cotton fabric that is soft, light and breathable with a smooth finish. It is a great choice for summers as it quickly absorbs moisture and keeps you at ease and becomes softer with every wash.

  • Origin – Mulmul is a soft and fine weave of cotton which is also known as muslin, that was first made by Bengali weavers many hundred years ago. This fabric was one of the prized imports from India to England and Scotland.
  • Technique - Hand blocking is an ancient method of textile printing, renowned for it's exotic designs in vibrant colors on fabric. In this method, wooden blocks carved with intricate details are used to manually print beautiful designs that usually cover the entire length of a fabric. Block printing can be carried out beautifully on a variety of fabrics but most suitable match is cotton or cotton linen. The characteristics of these fabrics have a specially affinity towards different types of dyes and pigments. Block-printing craft is practiced in two states of India - Gujarat and Rajasthan.

There are different styles of block printing, the most renowned ones are

Bagru, it is done by printing dark or colored motifs on a cream or dyed background. This process involves the use of natural mordants – like harda and alum – to capture the natural colors of the print on the fabric using our pattern blocks.

Dabu, has light colored motifs on a dark ground. It is a mud resistance method, mud aka kaali mitti paste is used to block print the pattern. After dyeing the fabrics, the motifs covered with the mud print remain uncolored, while the rest of the fabric takes on the hue of the dye.

The key difference between the styles are color combinations and motifs. For example, the color of the cloth on which the motifs are printed is also another differentiator. In Bagru, the cloth has either a cream base or a dyed base, while Sanganeri prints have a white base.
