Designing your own tablecloth (or material for any use) is another fun thing to do in Dhaka.
You pick out the block pattern from giant pattern books, choose the cloth (dyed or untreated), choose the colors and pattern. You can even have your own blocks designed if you want something specific put on the cloth. If you don’t want block printed designs, you can get a spray painted design.
An eight foot long tablecloth costs around 3,000 Taka ($33). Get it while you’re here!
