Dramatic designs in rich tones imbue our handmade indigo pillow cases with a feeling of elegance and tradition. Drawing upon centuries old techniques, our red, off-white and indigo dyed collection is made using a complex process called “Jahota” printing that produces subtle variations in color and pattern, lending depth and character to each piece.
Pair these handmade pillow cases with our matching bed linens for a coordinated look, or get adventurous and mix them up with linens you already own with solids and geometric designs, or even florals and paisleys.
*Some color rub off is to be expected in indigo dyed textiles. We recommend cold washing separately before use.
Process: This meticulous craft originates from the village of Jahota in Rajasthan and combines the “bagru” and “dabu” printing processes. The design is hand block printed in black and red colors that are typical in bagru printing.
The mud-resist or “dabu” process is then used in a 2-step process for indigo dyeing in two shades. The pattern that is not blue in the final design is covered entirely by carefully block printing over it with a dye-resistant mud paste. The fabric is then dusted with sand and dried in sunlight before dipping it gently into an indigo dye bath to achieve a light blue shade for the background. The pattern appearing in light blue is then blocked with the dabu, and the fabric is placed back in an indigo bath to get the deep blue background. The dabu is then removed, and all the colored patterns are revealed.
