The Timeless Art of Hand Block Printing
In the world of textile craftsmanship, few techniques carry the old-world allure and elegance of hand block printing.
The roots of hand block printing stretch across ancient cultures, finding prominence in regions like Rajasthan and Gujarat in India.
Sanganeri prints are a celebration of intricate craftsmanship and vibrant heritage. These prints are known for their delicate motifs and timeless appeal, crafted through a meticulous process that involves kaarigars to meticulously hand-carve intricate designs onto wooden blocks.
Dipped in paint trays made in wood and jute, the prints are imprinted on fabrics with patterns inspired by nature, mythology, and daily life. This method is also known as "Chhapa," gives subtle and beautiful imperfections that are inherent in this process which adds a distinctive charm to each piece.
Hand-printing has various techniques that breathe life into fabrics. For our prints, we've embraced the direct chappa print method—an artful dance between wood, dye, and fabric. The result is akin to a blank canvas coming to life, where every piece tells a story of its own. Crafted entirely in our exclusive hand-block printed cotton, this collection unfolds our most versatile edit yet.
As you wear each piece, adorned with the elegance of tradition and the enchantment of hand-block printing, let it be a celebration of the queen within. Shop here
