Handblock printing is one of the three main techniques used for our fabric decoration. Skilled artisans carve the required design into hard wood to make the blocks that are the essential tools for printing. These blocks are dipped sequentially into dye bath and stamped onto the fabric with skilled precision. A separate block is used for each color. Some fabrics may have as many as 500 blocks repeats in one meter of fabric!
