Weaving

Weaving

Weaving is an amazing method of textile production where two sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth. In India the most popular materials used are cotton and silk. Weaving can be used to make so much – rugs, dresses or even blankets!

Fabric Design

On our Colouricious textile holiday to India you will see some amazing fabric design, produced through a number of different ways, all using block printing. One of the most interesting fabric design techniques is Dabu printing.

Dabu printing is a method of fabric design using block printing and mud.This method of fabric design ensures the fabric has a magnificent quality and appearance. The process of uses lots of natural dyes and vegetable pastes, and is done entirely manually, which means it can be very hard work. However this hard work seems to pay off, since the finished product is beautifully vibrant, with amazing prints!
