Encapture the Kutch in your drapes,

With the royal touch of holy Ganga,

Let's take you to the inner world of the making of Chidiyaa saree.
The first door-
It opens in the land of ancient India that possesses a majority of block cavers, dyers, and painters. Block carving is the first step in defining our designs. With motifs inspire for the lap of nature. The artisans intricately craft these dainty patterns in wooden blocks with the use of small hammers, chisels, and drills. After the carving is done, these blocks are dipped in mustard oil and made to rest for a weak. Helps to increases the life of the block and also prevents it from cracking.
The Palace of Illusion-
After traveling through the old land we arrive into the Fabric world, where the chosen saree fabric is washed to remove all the starch. Once the treatment is done, the fabric is laid on the printing table and stretched properly across the entire length with the help of tinny pins.
The Final Doors to Heaven-
Usually, printing always begins from left to right. A plank of wood is used to even out the color on the tray. The craftsman dips the block into a dark outline color and applies it to the fabric. This is done repeatedly along the length and breadth of the fabric.
The Last Touch-
Once, the printing is done the fabric is left to dry out in the sun after removal of fine dust from the surface.
