The discovery of a dyed cotton fabric date back to the Indus Valley civilization shows that the art of dyeing with the use of mordants was well
known to the Indian dyers 5,000 years ago. This form of dyeing was responsible for making India famous all over the world for its dyed and printed fabrics. Printed fabrics have also been found in Fostat, the old Cairo City. Recent excavations of Red Sea ports have also brought out a greater range of printed textile. These date back to 800 A.D. There technique and design point to western Indian origin. Indian dyers had mastered the art of dyeing with speedy colors from ancient times whereas in Europe this was unknown. Indian dyers were considered magicians by travelers, who saw them putting a white cloth into a pale liquid of indigo dye and when the cloth appeared from the dye bath it was still white.
A number of printing technique have been urbanized in different centers. They are direct printing, resist printing, and screen printing. In certain cases, the cloth is painted by using by using a pen with dyes and mordants. This method is known as kalamkari, a pen work.
