What Is Block Printing?
The traditional process of hand block printing on textiles with rich colours has been practiced in Jaipur, Rajasthan for around 500 years.
It all starts with a wood block that has been completely carved by hand. This intricate printing process requires steady movement and careful hand-eye coordination. The process is both beautiful and can be very meticulous & meditative. Often there are up to 3-5 colors that are layered block upon block. Talented artisans dip the blocks in custom artisan dyes creating gorgeous combinations.
