Traditional hand block printing is practiced at very few places in India, and Ummedpura-Tarapur is one of such twin villages of Madhya Pradesh.

Technical name of this Tarapur hand block print is “Syahi Begar Print”. “Syahi” means dense black and begar means red or maroon.

Two mordant (Colour binder) are used to get the red and black color in the hand block printing process. To get the black color jiggery powder and iron rust solution mixed with tamarind seed powder printed on harad (myrabalan) dyed base, and to get red color a paste known as “Begar” prepared by mixing alum with tamarind seed powder or gum Arabica and printed as mordant and then dyed with manjishtha roots or aal roots as a natural dye source or alizarin as synthetic source of red color. In last 60 years traditional craftsman adopted the synthetic source of red color known “Alizarin”. In past to get natural red color roots of Aal (Morinda tinctoria) tree or manjishtha (Rubia cordifolia) plant were used.

At EcoFab we have revived the use of manjishtha or Indian madder as a source of natural red color in the traditional hand block printing process.

This saree is completely dyed with natural and herbal dyes.
