Nandana Print is one of its unique and complex styles of hand block printing today rarely practiced by local “Chippa” community in the Tarapur village of Madhya Pradesh. It is a very time consuming and labor intensive process. To print a buta (flower) design it requires four different blocks under Nandana style of printing. In traditional process only vegetable and natural dyes used in preparing the final product but due to increase in cost now chemical colors are also used by craftsmen family. EcoFab is committed to promote traditional work only so restricted to original work which is seldom practiced today.
It was basically prepared for the tribal of nearby areas but today it is very much popular among the art and craft lovers due to its complex yet eye catching designs and color combinations. Due to no development in this craft it is restricted to 4 designs only namely:
1. Mirach (Chilli)
2. Champakali (A kind of Flower)
3. Amba (Mango)
4. Jalam buta (Big flower)
