Direct Print, Resist Print, and Discharge Print:
There are three methods of pattern dyeing and printing: Direct, Resist, and Discharge Printing.
a design is etched into a copper roller. A dye that has been thickened into a past with starch, gelatin, or synthetic polymers is applied to the etched area while the UN-etched surface is kept clean.
The color design is transferred to the cloth under pressure. Direct printing may also involve forcing the past on to the fabric through a screen.
A technique similar to stencil printing except that screen controls how much past is applied to the cloth.
a reverse printing method, a dye repelling substance is selectively applied to the cloth, which is then placed in a dye bath. This method is used, for example, to produce white polka dots on a color background.
the whole fabric is dyed. A pattern is then printed on the fabric with a chemical that oxidizes or reduces the dye, creating a white pattern on a colored background.
