Below is the rich history of block printing with our three beautiful prints, each reciting a unique tale.
Block Printed Fabrics- A History:
Block printing was first practiced in China during the third century AD, according to historical texts. Initially, these ancient blocks were not used on fabric; the paper was used for block printing for the first time in the 7th century. Block printing is a relief printing technique that transfers ink onto textile or paper using an engraved material (usually wood, linoleum, or rubber). The block is used as a stamp, and the final product is a mirror image of the carving. Block prints are still done by eye today, and telltale signs of the human hand and efforts, even flaws, are part of the craft’s indefinable humanity and beauty.
