The lush earth, in an embrace with fabric, sprouts beautiful patterns. And the earth had its playful ways, in slowly letting out this secret, to the Rangrez. It had lung onto his dhoti a day back at the riverside. He was deep in thought now, as he gathered the fabrics to be dyed.
The dhoti went along with the rest of the clothes, in the swift sweep of his hands and straight into the Indigo vat. He was surprised to find an odd-one-out the next day, amongst the dyed fabrics, left out to dry. The parts where the earth rested, the dye did not blot on. That part had retained the original color, like stars in an indigo sky. This way, the earth confided a crumb of its mystery, to the Rangrez. And then on, they conversed in patterns.
This is one of the many stories of the origin of Dabu or Mud- resist printing. Like the craft, the raw materials to are timeless – mud and water. Replenished generously by nature, these are believed to have been employed in India during, during 8th century AD. This is indicated by the oldest specimen found of Dabu printed fabric in Central Asia.
