Description

The stylized birds and flowers on our luxurious scarf come from a blue-resist panel (mid-18th century) in the Museum's collection, probably made in India for the American market. Resist-dyed textiles—typically created by applying a dye-resistant substance such as wax to a pattern and then placing the fabric in a dye bath, or by carefully folding the cloth to control where the dye transfers—were commonly used in the United States as bed hangings and quilts. These fabrics were formerly thought to be the earliest American-made printed textiles, but subsequent evidence suggests that they were more likely commissioned from Indian artisans by the East India Company.
