Hand-made textile from Rajasthan's Bagru in trademark row

Ramkishore Derawala from the Chippa community of painters in Rajasthan has been served a legal notice by Hemant Kumar Sethia for using the word ‘Bagru’ for selling products, with the latter claiming that he had acquired the trademark in 2008 under the Trademarks Act 1999 and that no one is allowed to use the name while selling any cloth material.

This has put artisans practising the 400-year-old craft of Bagru block printing from the namesake village near Jaipur in a dilemma, according to a report in atop English-language daily.

The ‘Bagru’ block printing technique has created the identity of the village where generations of artists have been practising it for centuries. It received the Geographic Indication tag from the government in 2009.

The artisans of Bagru are preparing to respond to this legal challenge.
