Bagh Print: Bagh Print is a unique traditional Indian printing originating in village Bagh, Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh. The river Baghini which 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 brings out the rich colors of natural pigments and also helps with color fastness.  The process is characterized by naturally sourced pigments and dyes. Bagh printed textiles are super soft and it is believed that beating and washing in the river water and use of natural pigments makes them so.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.
