    Here's some more details about the nankeen process in creating the fabric :

    The term "blue nankeen" describes hand-printed fabric of artistic refinement and primitive simplicity, which originated on the Silk Road over three thousand years ago. Hand-carved stencils, originally made from wood but now from heavy paper, are prepared and a mix of soya bean flour and slaked lime is applied through the openings of the stencil onto the 100% cotton fabric.

    When dry, the fabric is then dipped numerous times into the large tubs containing the indigo dye. After the right color is achieved and the fabric has dried, the paste is scraped off, revealing the white patterns on the blue cloth. The fabric is then washed, dried, and ironed before fabrication into the Nankeen collection. Such fabric represents a fast-disappearing historic art form which embodies ancient Chinese culture and traditions.

    Jennifer, I have a question. Do I ruin my chances of winning another bag in the future if I was to win this one? What a silly question but I am afraid I will sign up for a bag I dont really like and then win and then another giveaway will come and I willbe desqualified.
