you know? From the 12th century, India's drape technology has been very famous. People all over the world appreciate the finished product, and many people who come to watch the production process are amazed by the tedious production process. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49679211381_880a21446e_b_d.jpg At the beginning, Indians will use natural plant colors as dyes, and send the cloth into the dye tank again and again, after hundreds of dyes back and forth, and then boiled in hot water dye with special ingredients, boiled, At this time, the original white cotton will be dyed to the color we want. But wait again! It takes two more days of exposure to dryness before proceeding to the next step-"preparing for cover dyeing." https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49679067816_451aba0fe8_b_d.jpg Do you think you can start stamping? Not yet! Indian handmade products are not so easy to complete! Of course, the patterns on the dyed cloth must be born by themselves, so you must first engrav the seals of various sizes and patterns ~ https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49679067361_e3089152f9_b_d.jpg Because each cover dyed cloth needs different patterns and different kinds of fabrics, so there are tens of thousands of seals carved by the seal master. Some can be used as tapestries, bed sheets, and some are placemats. Napkins can even be used as clothes or scarves on your body. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49678536088_98ce135305_b_d.jpg There are many preparations for the dyeing process, and the same action needs to be repeated for a long time. The picture above shows that the dyeing masters are pressing the pattern neatly on the cloth by "hand brushing". The distance between the pattern is a major point. Each time the dyeing force and angle are the longest and a lot of Practice session. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49679356742_683ae16f82_b_d.jpg This type of covering and dyeing method is called "Screen Printing", which is a production method developed in a later stage, and it can also be called "printing and dyeing". The advantage is that a large area of the pattern is covered at one time, but there are also parts that need to be focused on the workmanship. The number of colors on a cloth needs to be printed at least as many times. !! But even with such convenient tools, there are still factories that use manual dyeing methods. They believe that the hand-printed products are the real dyeing process. When we visited the dyeing factory that day, we could say that it was all the way Impressed by their persistence and hard work, they fully felt the persistence and belief of their opponent's crafts, which is the most charming and dedicated place for this kind of products.
