Œillet Indigo Tablecloth

$120.00

 An ages old floral motif - the Œillet pattern is recognized the world over, across many cultures and it is so fitting to use at a table where we all come together to share a meal. We love it's juxtaposition of deep indigo and brick red together. This indigo dyed collection is made by Marigold Living, using a complex process called “Jahota” printing that produces subtle variations in color and pattern, lending depth and character to each piece.

*Some color rub-off is to be expected in indigo dyed textiles over a few initial wash cycles. 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.

These pieces are hand made in India- please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery from date of purchase.
