At Aranya, we make batik fabric using a wax resist dyeing process, by block printing the wax onto the fabric. There is beauty in the individuality of each handmade piece. Practiced in just a few countries, batik is an ancient art form which enjoys Unesco
Heritage status.

In this method, fabric is folded and tied with strings, such that part of the fabric is brought to one side. The rest of the fabric is covered with polythene, ensuring that only the exposed part of the fabric takes the dye. We use this dyeing method for both saris and stoles.

This is a traditional Japanese art of tie-and-dye, where cloth is dyed by folding, twisting, compressing, stitching or capping it. There are many techniques of shibori. The dyer will choose the technique depending on the fabric used and the required design.

Block printing, usually done with natural dye, is a heritage
craft. Intricately carved wooden blocks are dipped in dye and repeatedly pressed by hand along a length of cloth to produce a pattern. Hand block printing makes every piece unique, unlike machine-produced fabric.

Mordant printing is used to set natural dyes on natural fabrics, particularly silk and wool. Depending on the fabric used, it is treated with mordants such as alum and then dyed, or the mordant is added to the dye bath, or the material is treated with a mordant after dyeing.
