In Theory Indian Cotton

A striking Bagru block print.

Bagru, a small village in Rajasthan, 35 kilometres from Jaipur, is known for its hand block printing utilising traditional processes and natural colours. Bagru prints tend to be more simple with limited colours in comparison to Sanganer block prints which are more colourful with finer detail. Block printing is still practiced by the Chippa community, who have lived here for over 400 years.

In Theory is suitable for tops, loose fitting trousers and shorts, and dresses and skirts with fullness.

Traditional hand block and dye techniques are used to make this wonderful rural cloth. Indian cloths are sometimes susceptible to irregularities in the weave, this is all part of their charm and are not classed as flaws.
