The Indian city of Agra is thought to derive its name from 'agreva?a', the Sanskrit word meaning 'bordering the forest'. The pattern is created using a traditional Indian double resist dyeing method which uses a mixture of river clay, minerals and gum - known as 'dabu' - as a smooth 'mud' paste. Wooden blocks then transfer this onto the fabric; the mud mixture resists the dye and creates the pattern. Indigo dyed, printed cotton with shell buttons in a loose-fitting style.
