Specimens of Indian hand printed fabrics

Since my last post on Indian hand printed fabrics I found some specimens from my wardrobe to give an idea of what some of these fabrics look like. They have vibrant colors and a real organic look and feel. These are just a few quick things I found and don't quite do justice to the plethora of options available. Most of the fabrics are hand spun on manually operated looms. You can see the uneven weave which makes it so much more desirable.
