The ancient art of hand block printing is an avant-garde practice that is being used in India since ages. Fabrics such as cotton, silk, mulmul, etc. are beautified using wooden blocks with carvings of typical Indian motifs such as flowers, leaves, petals, etc. The carvings on the blocks are made by skilled craftsmen, producing quality kurtis since ages. Hand block printed cotton kurtis of India are exported worldwide and have made a place for themselves in the world of vogue.

Prints to Pick


There are two types of hand block printing techniques famous in Rajasthan, namely- Sanganeri and Bagru. Sanganeri hand block printing is quite different from Bagru hand block printing. In Bagru, hand block printing is done only on red, black and dark colored bases. On the other hand, Sanganeri hand block printing is done on a white base. Rich and vivacious prints are created through hand block printing and usually finer designs are used to imprint on fabrics.

Designers across the country have bowed to the charm of delicate hand block prints and often incorporate them in their collection.
