Celebrating the love of cottons, in new ways every day. We are so excited to add Jahota block print to our collection! Jahota, a type of block print from Jahota, Rajasthan - is a beautiful amalgamation between Dabu (a mud resist block) and general block prints. Meaning, it has an added step of block print over dabu as well, giving a new dimension to the craft!
Using natural and chemical dyes, jahota focuses on floral along with dabu. Sometimes, these florals are a part of the entire design, sometimes these form an overprint to an underlaying design - basically, adding a new layer, a new dimension to what a print could be. Due to the complexity of the layers, it involves a range of added steps to the regular Dabu block print! You’ll also notice, the layers of complexity are not just for the blocks, but also for the colours - the layers of red are overridden by layer of blue to give a dark blue/black shade!
The complexity of this print and the simpleness of cotton is what makes it so great!
