We use the traditional hand block method to print on fabrics, which has been used in Rajasthan for over 500 years. It’s a method that has been passed down for generations within families and communities, using traditional plant-based dyes.

 The colours depend on the quality of the plants, the water, the skills of the printing artisan and even the weather. The artisans start with a design on paper and then carve it by hand into Sheesham wood blocks. For each colour in the printing process, a unique carved wooden block is used.
This is a slow but precise method as each block has a different colour and it takes considerable time to stamp the colour on the fabrics. But when the lengthy process is complete, the result is a beautiful and unique handmade fabric—every single item is one of a kind.
