Stunning sensations in the Batik Printed salwar kameez

pr5262Batik is a process using ‘resists’ for making designs on a fabric. The conventional Batik process has a resist or a physical block in some form or the other to prevent desired areas on the fabric from being penetrated by dye. Generally wax is used as a resist in Batik. The block printed areas where resists are in place, come out as un-dyed areas in the dyed fabric and could be coloured differently in repeat wax dye process. This can be repeated several times at the same place or different places with wax-dye process time and again for every subsequent colour change.

Batik can be done with various types of dye & wax on cotton, silk and other natural fabrics. Cotton is easy to work with and generally gives best results. Repeated waxing and dyeing over the same place gets newer overlapping results. The idea in multi-layer colouring is to start with lighter shades of the dye and proceed to deeper ones. Here care is taken that wax resist is neither light nor heavy since lighter would mean possible penetration of dye onto resist area and heavy would mean the wax will not resist properly and could cause patches or dye spreads when removed.

pr5261_b1The rarer but finer Pen Batik saris

The rarer type of Batik is Pen Batik. Fine designs are made on the fabric using ‘Tjanting’ tools. Molten wax at a certain temperature is carefully put on the design lines with Batik dropper pen. A lot of care has to be exercised. Too thin a layer could give way to colour dye through surface cracks. Temperature of the wax is normally kept between 200 and 230 degrees. In the former or conventional method vats or tubs with boiling water are used to melt away the wax. In the latter a small tub with hot water is generally preferred.

After the entire resist dyeing process is over, and the wax has melted away in hot water, a neatly dyed plain or designed fabric is available.

The Fresh-Look Sambalpuri Cotton Salwar kameez

pr4168_b1The traditional Sambalpuri Kameez in its cotton and silk versions is a captivating fabric from the tribal belt of Odisha. Sambalpur in the state of Odisha, India, is famous for its Sambalpuri variety of cotton and silk fabrics, using Ikkat patterns or the tie-dye method in their making. Cotton and mercerized cotton are used in making sambalpuri cotton saris.

The appeal of Sambalpuri mercerized Cotton salwar kameez

The need for a fabric similar to silk, which has lustre, strength, smoothness and soft feel, plus its elasticity and desirable quality to acquire most colours and shades is provided by mercerized cotton, a more affordable and appealing substitute. Cotton has the best absorption capacity among fabrics and is a ‘breathing’ fabric which allows free air movement. This allows the body to cool and keeps it comfortable in hot and sultry weather conditions. Mercerization is a treatment for cellulosic materials like cotton fabric and thread that gives the fabric or yarns a lustrous appearance, strengthens them and yet maintains the above mentioned quality of pure cotton.

pr4084_b2The Ikkat tie & dye Sambalpuri shalwar kamiz

The Ikkat style of weaving is employed in the hand-woven Sambalpuri salwar kameez using geometrical patterns. Ikkat is a technique which involves applying bindings, which resist dye penetration to the threads in pre-determined patterns, and then dyeing the threads. These dyed threads are then woven to produce the desired pattern. Within the ikkat style are variants of single-ikkat and double-ikkat. Alternately the tie-die method of weaving and then dyeing, known as ‘bandhakala’ is also used. Here the threads are first woven and the resist bindings then applied to the fabric before dyeing it.

This traditional art uses vegetable dyes to a large extent, with a leaning toward artificial colours in present day creations. Black, yellow, orange, maroon, are the preferred hues. Sambalpuri cotton salwar suits find preference for daily-wear as well as for casual occasions and generally housewives and college-goers choose to wear them.
