MALABAR (Archived)

Though this design takes it's name from a city on India's southwestern coast, geographically it cannot be placed. It could possibly be from eastern Iran or possibly from the former Jin territories of Central Asia. It was an all over pattern when we discovered it and isolated a single medallion. After we hand cut a stencil of the design, we made a screen and double printed it with two colors to achieve the cast shadow that gives Malabar it's beautiful depth.
