The process followed for creating the ritual cotton textile is an oral tradition that is handed down within the family. Once the cotton textile, either handmade or mill made, has been prepared for printing through a procedure of cleansing, and treating with Harda, the dried and powdered fruit from the Chebula Myroballan tree, the cotton fabric is ready to be printed with the outlinr rekh block.

The inky blackness of the dye is obtained by fermenting iron fillings with jaggery.
