Buta Jumper

& Udaipur

Block printing is the earliest, simplest, and most time consuming of all methods of textile printing in India. First, woodworkers hand-carve intricate patterns into blocks of dense rosewood. The blocks are then dipped in vegetable dye and firmly pressed onto stretched fabric with precise repetition. Once the pattern fills the entire length of the fabric, it is dried in the sun, rolled in newspapers, and steamed in special boilers. Then they're washed, dried in the sun again, and ironed. Each of these steps lock the pigments into the fabric, making the colors rich and vibrant. The process is long, but the results have a tactile, artistic, no-one-else-has-this-exact-pattern kind of quality.

& The Multani Family

Our & Udaipur line is the result of a collaboration with the Multani family. The Multani's have practiced the ancient art of block printing for nearly five centuries. Son, Raj currently trains under the careful watch of his master craftsman father, Yaqoob.

The Buta pattern found on this piece is a droplet-shaped, vegetable motif designed by Yaqoob, and hand-carved into a solid block of rosewood. Both the buta design and the block stamp craft are ancient techniques influenced by the Persian art during the Mongol Dynasty and made popular in the West by Indians during the British era around the 18th & 19th centuries.
