Naboyka fabric print day
Naboyka – a fabric printed with a block, or block-printed fabric. The Prostatov family, who operated in Kolkja, also owned block printing workshops in Viljandi and Paide. They mostly printed fabric by using the resist printing technique and printing blocks. The fabrics were predominantly dark blue with white embellishments. They printed tablecloths, sarafan and shirt fabrics, as well as duvet cover fabrics. Naboyka fabric print day, which is held at Peipsimaa Visitor Centre, introduces the history of fabric printing. Participants can make fabrics and prepare printing blocks on their own.
