Dabu printing is also a unique art form found in Rajasthan. In this, a design is sketched onto the background cloth. This sketched design is covered with clay on which saw dust is sprinkled. The saw dust sticks to the cloth as the clay dries. Thereafter, the entire cloth is dyed in select colors. The area where clay and sawdust mixture is present does not catch the dye and remains colorless. After dyeing and drying, the cloth is washed to remove the clay and the mixture. For additional colour, this cloth is dyed again in a lighter shade to cover the patterned.
They can be used to cover smaller spaces, walkways, bathrooms and outdoor areas and even rooms. It can be framed on walls and used as a wall Art. It is a very good gift item due to its size. We can even make cushion covers of these rugs
