Chintz

Chintz was an Indian trade textile that was hand-painted, resist-and-mordant dyed cotton. It is the epitome of artistic and design exchange across cultures and continents, made using a technique that is defined as the peak of excellence in hand-painted textiles. A technique in which layer after layer of perfection was painstakingly painted using natural materials such as buffalo milk, natural dyes, mordants, wax and dung. Indeed, as Dutch agent Daniel Harvart observed in 17th century, “very slowly, like snails which creep on and appear not to advance. Yes, he who would wish to depict patience would need no other object than such a painter”.
