Aesthetic prints that make up India’s Ethnic Soul

As a country, India has been a significant cloth merchant throughout the history of Textiles. And it has not just been because of good materials and incredible quality of clothes but more importantly, because of the unique and attractive prints. For example, “umbrella prints” are enough to explain the patterns on a cloth. But, there are specific names of these types of textile patterns and prints through which they have been traditionally identified. Here are a few top aesthetic prints that represent the prestige of the Indian textile industry.
Bandhani is one of the most famous prints that are made in India. The word Bandhani is derived from an Indian word “Bandha” which means to be tied or bound. This name was given to this print, because the procedure to make this print involves making small or large ties on the cloth and then dipping in the textile dye of various colors to produce shapes and patterns. This is also called the tie and dye method. Hence, this print is also named as “tie and dye print” in the western countries. Bandhani print with small or big shape patterns is used in almost all types of dresses and even on the traditional bed sheets and curtains. Textile traders can easily purchase such Fabric from Gokul Texprints. One can find endless variations and designs at the designing houses of Gokul.
This is a famous print from the Patan region which is a combination of block and floral patterns. Although it is being made in different colors, it is traditionally found in dark red and blue tones. Textile traders across India prefer Gokul Texprints when it comes to shopping for Fabric with Patola Print. Patola is created as a double ikat weave which means that the pattern is not printed on the fabric after it is made, but it is produced as a result of patterned weaving of the already dyed threads. Due to this, such a type of printed fabric comes a little expensive especially if it is handwoven. The price of the Patola printed fabric is the reason that it is considered a symbol of high status and prestige in the history of the Patan region.

The name of this print was kept Kalamkari because it is derived from an ancient art form that was made with the help of a pen. The print is called Kalamkari because its name is derived from two words the first one is kalam that means the pen and Kari means drawing, writing, or painting. In an ancient time, where ever the Indian artists used to go, they used to leave their mythologies there in the form of paintings which were made from the paint made out of natural extracts. The popularity of this print comes from the maximum focus that is paid to the details in the pattern with clean boundaries of every shape. Kalamkari prints are made available to the Indian textile market in colorful and elegant designs by Gokul Texprints.
