The Story: Syahi Begar Block Printing hails from the region of Bagru, Rajasthan. Bagru, a town in the outskirts of Jaipur, Rajasthan is one of the hubs of textiles. The place is known as a centuries old centre for natural dyeing, syahi begar printing, indigo dyeing and wooden hand block printing over textile articles.
Syahi begar printing is one of the traditional hand block print techniques where the prints are in the combination of red, black and yellow ochre or cream. Syahi (black color) is made by keeping the mixture of horse shoe iron, water and jaggery in an earthen pot for around 15-20 days in summers whereas; in winters it takes around 6 weeks to get ready. Then Tamarind seed powder is mixed to this mixture and boiled.
Begar (red color) is made by mixing Alum (fitkari), madder (lal mitti) and juice of babool gond. The fabric is pre-washed and soaked in fresh water and turcoil oil for 24 hours to remove all starch, dust, or any other contaminants. Next day the remaining dust from the fabric is removed by the beating process. The fabric is then dyed in the harda (merubelum powder) solution, which allows the natural dyes to adhere to the fabric and become colorfast. The typical yellow dye or color is obtained from the Harda fruit which is again yellow in color.
Now the yellow dyed fabric is spread on long padded printing tables. This procedure of printing is repeated over and over again, primarily with the gadh block (background), and then again with the rehk (fine outlines) and datta (inside filling) blocks to fill in different colors.
After all the printing is complete, the fabric is left to dry then it is washed 3-4 times in fresh water. The fabric is then boiled for around 5 hours in a larger copper pot (bhatti), which consists of a mix of natural ingredients like alizerine (aal ki lakdi) and sakura flower (dawaria ka fool). After boiling, the fabric is once again dipped in harda to remove the excess alum (fitkari). The block printed fabric is finally ready.
