Marigold Silk Velvet Block Printed Scarf
A truly unique silk velvet scarf, which has been hand block printed in a decorative flower and double dyed using pomegranate husks to create this beautiful two tone amber design.
Dabu block printing is an ancient textile printing technique primarily practiced in Jaipur, it is a labour intensive task, using a mud resist and requires several steps in printing and dyeing to achieve this beautiful effect.
