Hand block printing – India

Katina | Posted in General Discussion on

The current issue features some ethnic fabrics. The following link will take you to the Anokhi Museum near Jaipur, India; the video is fascinating.

    Thanks so much for that link. I loved the short video on hand block printing, as well as the other videos on Rajasthan, including the one on the turban museum. They left me wanting more!

    Your posting about Indian block printing is interesting to me right now as my daughter-in-law just recently sent me a block with an elephant on it. Now I am going to have to do some research on what sort of dye is used and the technique as it is something I would like to try.

    I rather suspect, though, that this particular block is not incised enough and is more in the way of a souvenir rather than an actual usable item.

      Sounds very interesting. Even if it's not much incised, it's surely useable? You could combine it with smaller stencils to create a 'busier' fabric. Or a row of elephants printed, say, across a cushion cover?
