Block printing is an ancient textile printing technique which involves stamping patterns onto fabric with hand carved wooden blocks dipped in dyes. Indian block printers have passed down their wooden blocks through generations of artisans, and each family has their own unique set of blocks.
The printed patterns range from paisley to geometric shapes, and can be single color or multiple color designs. A different coordinating block is used to print each color and it requires great skill and precision to make all of the colors and patterns line up seamlessly (for more info visit sevya.com).
