Hand Block Printing on textiles refers to the technique by which carved wooden blocks covered with dye are repeatedly pressed along a length of cloth to create a repeated pattern. What makes this technique unique is the fact that the design has to be first carved onto the wooden block by hand, and then executed on the fabric. The block printed textiles of India became famous in the 16th and 17th centuries in Europe when the East India Company began to export them in bulk. They are usually colorful floral patterns and known for their fine and intricate detailing. The block print designs created centuries ago remain ever popular through out many cultures around the world today. A lovely quality with endless versatility.
