  • Union Council Minister Smriti Irani inaugurated the 'Titanwala Museum' in Bagru village of Rajasthan that showcases the Chippa community's (literally meaning people who stamp or print) Hand-block printing.
  • Bagru printing is one of the traditional techniques of printing with natural colourfollowed by the chippas of a remote place of Rajasthan.
  • Bagru printers use a technique called dabu in which a mixture of black clay, acacia gum, spoiled wheat flour, limestone is printed onto the fabric. The fabric can then be dyed and left in the sun to dry.
