Red & Black Paisley Hand Block Printed Skirt


Hand-block printing is a laborious process which requires immense patience. The fabric is first washed in a flowing river to reduce water consumption. It is then sun-dried and dyed, laid out flat on a table and pinned firmly to the table with pins. Four to five natural colours made from organic substances are then mixed together to form myriad colours. Once the colours are mixed in the desired hues the carved block is dipped into them and then stamped firmly by hand on the fabric to form intricate designs. Finally the fabric is again dipped into the flowing river and hung out to dry in the sun to attain luminosity of colours. This skirt is hand-block printed in classic Red & Black combination with intricately patterned paisleys. The length of the fabric has then been cut into different lengths of panels which have been stitched together to form a flowing form which is flattering to a woman’s figure. The yoke on top around the waist streamlines the look further to give a sleek silhouette to regular curves. The skirt has been designed especially for Ranakah and there is no other piece in the same print. The tassels at the edge of the drawstring have been created especially for Ranakah from colourful wool spools and are unique to the label

This pure cotton skirt should be hand-washed separately in cold water or with similar colours. Please dry it in shade and iron it on medium heat since the edging of the skirt is in a silk mix fabric. It can be dry cleaned too.

The product is hand dyed. Since it is a cotton product hence the colour might bleed in the first wash.

Please note that since this is a hand block printed fabric in vegetable dyes, hence there are likely to be colour gradations or a little bit of unevenness in the print, but these imperfections only add to the charm of this handcrafted fabric.
