It features the complex block printing technique, an art which calls for steady movement and meticulous hand and eye coordination. The craft has been practised in Rajasthan for around 500 years. The process starts with the block design, first drawn on paper and then carved by hand onto wooden blocks which are approximately 18-24cm. The block is dipped in natural dye and carefully stamped on fabric. The process is repeated multiple times by skilled hands. Block carving in itself is a precise art requiring years of apprenticeship and done entirely by hand. Each color pattern is stamped individually onto the fabric. The process takes time and skill, as the pattern must be stamped repeatedly across the fabric, color by color. The subtle gaps and overlaps are a beautiful reminder of beauty of handmade crafts and give block printing its iconic look. Rajasthan’s block printing villages echo the rhythmic ‘knocking’ sounds that are created when the block printer stamps the wooden block on fabric.
