Handprinted textiles, by virtue of their beautiful artisanship, are meant to have slight irregularities, tiny bleeds or imperfections in printing and dyeing due to being handmade. No two pieces will ever be completely alike, each one is a labour of love and rivaayat (tradition). These quirks are a testament to the process of slow creation. They are not to be considered defects, for they showcase a valuable evidence of handcrafted heritage.
