Rogan printing

Rogan printing is an art of cloth printing practiced in the Kutch District of Gujarat.

Rogan printing involves using a thick bright paste to paint on plain cloth. The paste is prepared by boiling the oil of safflower, castor or linseed and pouring it into water. This paste is mixed with chalk, coloured pigment and a binding agent to form a thick dye. The painting on the cloth is done using a stick, a rod or a metal block. Yellow, blue and red are the most frequently used colours.

Geometric and floral designs are most common. Stylish results can be achieved using the most ordinary cloth. Rogan-printed cloth is used for saris, wall-hangings and curtains, among other uses.
