Default Ancient Fabric treatment and Printing

Here's an interesting article/film clip about a technique from the 1600's that is still being used by the last artisan in Italy

Thank you for this link!

Rust printing has always been fascinating to me.

I think this link will work a bit better. (My apologies if I posted the wrong ones.)

Wow! Very interesting that this art form is not thriving with other textile designers and so isolated to this one region of the world.

It seems to be more of a 'craftsy' sort of thing here in the US. I first saw it on a PBS craft-type show, years ago. It is also on youtube. (rust printing on both paper and fabric).

I don't think that these are necessarily "cheap imitations of rust prints" as the original story states. Just a newer form of an old technique. I have many hand cut wooden stamps and tjaps-both copper and wood, that I use for this type of printing. I also use them for wax and glue resist prints when I'm playing with dyes.

I believe the "cheap imitations" they're referring to is in reference to sales of lesser goods by other producers.
