In India, just south of Jaipur, there is a village of traditional blockprinters. There Maiwa works very closely with Mahesh Dosaya, who learned the art of blockprinting from his father and grandfather. He and his brother Ramesh run the family textile business which produces everything from garments to bed linens. They have successfully retained the use of natural dyes and "Dabu" printing.
"Dabu" is a mud resist made through a special process. The mud must be the right consistency to be applied with a wooden block, be taken up by the fabric, and remain intact through an immersion dyebath to resist the dye.
