Block Print

What is Block Print?

Block printing is a traditional printing technique where a design is carved into a wooden or linoleum block, which is then inked and pressed onto fabric or paper. The carved block acts as a stamp, transferring the design onto the surface in a repeated pattern. Block printing allows for the creation of intricate and detailed designs with a handmade, rustic aesthetic. It is often used in textile design and production to create unique patterns on fabrics, such as sarees, scarves, or decorative textiles. Block printing can involve multiple colors and layers, with each block representing a different part of the design. It is a labor-intensive process that requires skill and precision to achieve consistent and high-quality results.
