Manikanchan~ Pure Muslin Cotton Tarapur Hand Block Print Saree ,BP.
Block Printing was practiced in places like Kukshi, Dharampuri and Thikri (Dhar district) by a group of Hindu and Mohammedan printers and dyers; the Chippas (printers) and the Nilgars (dyers). They catered to the clothing needs of the ‘Adivasis’ (native tribes). The patterns were mostly raw and coarse cotton was used.
However, the printers and dyers, in their never-ending quest for ideal conditions to hone their craft kept wandering and a group is believed to have settled in the villages of Tarapur and Umedpura of Madhya Pradesh. These two villages are on two side of river Gambhiri. The mineral content of the river water in this region brought out the required richness in the colors.
The craft is believed to have existed for over two hundred years here and grown to attain characteristic forms, which made it exclusive to the region.This gradual process is time consuming & Climate Dependent. The longer the wait, the more vivid the final print turns out. Thus, the wait time is long for beautiful eye-catching patterns on Tarapur sarees.
