Woodblock printing is a technique for imprinting designs on fabrics and papers that was in existence as early as 220 AD. Though block printing had its roots in China, it was Indian artisans who took it to the next level and introduced block printed textiles to the world.
Bagru is a small village in Jaipur where still a majority of families are block printing artists who create stunning fabrics in an array of colors. In this technique, the craftsman uses a handmade wooden block to stamp dye onto pieces of cloth. The end result is elegant and very classic and that’s why Indians love block prints in all their clothes, bedding, and upholstery.
