Bagh Print: Bagh Print is a traditional Indian handicraft originating in Bagh, Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh. The process is characterized by naturally sourced pigments and dyes. The river Baghini that runs through the village provides the much needed water which is the foundation of this craft. It is believed that the copper and lime rich water bring out the rich colors of natural pigments and also helps make the colors fast. The most common colors are red and black over a white background. To make the dyes, pigments like ferrous sulfate and alum are boiled in water and mixed with tamarind seed powder to make a paste which acts as black and red dyes respectively.
