Silkscreen on fabric, hand-colored
263 x 104,5 cm
The traditional Indian Patola textiles, made in Gujarat, employ a method of weaving where the warp and weft are resist dyed. This process of precise tying and dying means that when the two threads are woven together they form a complete motif. Matti Braun’s own version of the Patola circumvents this labor intensive method of production by using the more modern technique of silk screen printing.
