Dabu Printing The tradition of Dabu printing is practised by the Rajasthani Chippa community. In Dabu, wood blocks are used to apply the resist usually a paste of naturally pounded wheat chaff, mud, gum & sawdust, which is freshly prepared before each printing. To quickly dry the paste, saw dust is applied over the mud resist, this acts as a binder & prevents colour bleeding during the dyeing process. The application of the resist is followed by dipping the fabric in a cauldron of dye. This process can be repeated to create multiple levels of dabu patterns.

The double sided fabric enabled men to wear clothing that had on the exterior the rich, decorative qualities of woven silk whilst heeding religious laws. Mashru weaving is characterized by its bold colourful patterns & stripes of various colours & sizes. There are many types of Mashru including sangi, galta, gulbadan & susi, the differences are based on pattern, colour, weave & location of production. Whilst once widespread, the production of Mashru is now limited to Patan, Mandvi, & Surat in Gujurat.
