"Rose & Thistle" was originally printed by the
Indigo Discharge method of fabric printing. The fabric was dyed
first, and then a bleaching agent was block printed onto the
areas intended to be a lighter blue. The cloth was then washed,
revealing the pattern, which was then set and finished. Today's
printing simulates the look of Morris' Indigo Discharge method.
