Hot bees wax is to applied to white material with a special pen (chanting) to make various designs. This material is then colored using a multi layered process.
Avocado skin for greens, mangoes for yellows.
Another interesting thing at this stop is seeing an old-fashioned weaving machine in action. Although it is explained to me how different threads are used to make the designs, I am still confused but utterly impressed how it is all done.
