Calico prints printed in the Amana Colonies 1855-1917 were used for clothing and interiors in the communal era and beyond. Indigo dyes were applied to white, resist-stamped cotton fabrics to render over 500 different patterns. The cotton fabrics were purchased from the Southern states. The calicos are highly collectible and beautiful fabrics.
