Dabu is a mud-resist printing technique where the mud comes from a few ponds located near the town of Bagru where the printing is done. The mud is collected and mixed with other ingredients like jaggery to create the resist which is placed on the motifs. The fabric is then dyed with indigo, leaving the motifs hidden by the mud to stand out once the cloth is washed.
