Khari, a labour-intensive craft, use moulds with the designs cut out at one end whereas the other end is open to pour in the paste-like dye, which upon pressing onto the fabric to creates patterns. The motifs are small and require an enormous amount of manual labour and time.
Khari printing is a print technique using a paste which is pushed through a metal container with a specific design cut out from its base leaving an impression of that design on the fabric.
Traditional Khari printing used the dust of precious metals to ornament plain or printed textiles with motifs patterning them with the sparkle of gold and silver for wear at weddings and festivities. Simulating the look of the high-priced Zardozi metal thread embroidery, the age-old printing process remains the same through the use of precious metal dust has been largely substituted by crushed mica - chamki and other more affordable metal dust. Traditionally practised across Rajasthan in its erstwhile royal capitals, the city of Jaipur continues to have a vibrant Khari hand printing community practising their oral hereditary tradition.
