History of bagru Art
Bagru chhipas came from Sawai Madhopur, Alwar, Jhunjhuna, and Sikkar districts of Rajasthan to settle in Bagru and make it their home outset around 450 years ago. They are known for their unique designs of luxuriant trellises in sophisticated natural colors.
Main colours used in Bagru Art
Bagru prints are immensely used in contemporary as well as conventional garments.
Conventionally, Bagru prints were used mostly for ghagras (skirts), odhnis (scarves) and pagris (turbans). The printed lengths of rough cotton about 50 cms wide were typically sewn together for long skirts.
Today, the products made with Bagru block prints have entered into Home Furnishings, apparel and accessories.
