The word Rogan comes from Persian, meaning varnish or oil. Rogan painting, is an art of cloth printing practiced in the Kutch District of Gujarat, India.
In this craft, paint made from boiled oil and vegetable dyes is laid down on fabric using a stylus (painting), with Free Hand.

The painting begins on plain cloth and artisan allows Sticky oil paint, made out of typical arduous boiling and cooling process of castor oil, to drop in a form a thin streak, with a stylus, very precisely, following the image in his mind.
