    Akola Block Printed Towels

    Akola- A Mythological Village Of India

    Far from the rush and bustle of Udaipur's Lake City, the mythological village of Akola is located on the Khriki Chowki Highway, popularly referred to as the Chippon Ka Akola.  For Dabu Prints and Indigo, this location is a secret treasure. The Chhipa community has been making remarkable fabrics by printing and dying them for a very long time.  The Gujarati word Chapa, which means to print, is where the community's name originated in India. Only a few of the artisans who work in the heart of the community are experts in indigo printing, whereas the majority engage in making Dabu prints.  

    One of the most well-known and beloved Indian textile crafts is called Bagru Dabu. Akola is an undiscovered hamlet that excels in the art of Dabu printing! Dabu from Akola is distinctive because of its elaborate designs and high-end dye. 

    Indigo has always held a special place in people's hearts, from the Indus Valley Civilization to the British Raj. Indigo is more than just colour because of its imperial acceptance; it is an art in and of itself. These families of Aloka are notable for their devotion to and reverence for indigo printing. They give an unconditional commitment to each and every fabric they manufacture by drenching it in organic colours. The fabrics made with indigo here fade less and are stronger.  Additionally, the hand blocks engraved here are unique from others! They have a variety of complex carvings that are extremely exact. In fact, it is difficult to tell that the motifs are hand-printed at first glance! These characteristics make the Akola Indigo unrivalled and priceless.

    Sarees, bedsheets, gowns, handkerchiefs, towels, and many other items includeAkola block printing. And there is a variety of these items on iTokri!
