Ruby Silk Velvet Block Printed Scarf
A truly unique silk velvet scarf, which has been hand block printed in a decorative floral print and double dyed to create this beautiful two tone ruby red 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.
