Indian Hand Block Printing Traditions
Hand block printing in India brings 2000 years of legacy and expertise.; Block printing is a living, relevant craft; However, you're stepping into a river of textile knowledge that has been flowing since the 12th century.
The block printing process involves at least twelve experts before you strike the first print.; There is the brand, which hires a textile designer for the running print, elements and borders.; Then a block carver translates the textile design into a network of blocks that create precision lines and colors. The textile involves expertise too, because usually unprinted greige goods need to be bleached whiter with natural materials plus the sun. Some effects require the fabric to be washed and dried between steps.;
Printing starts by pinning clean cloth on a table, to avoid wrinkles and mis-prints. The outlines (usually in the darkest color) go down via experienced eye placement. When the block is in the right place, the printer gives the block a crisp chop that produces a clean print.
After the cloth has a strong impression by the block, it is sun-dried, washed, and ironed to inscribe the print.
Care and Cleaning Instructions: Dry clean only. No twisting or wringing. Do not bleach. Light iron.
