Block printing is a multi-step process requiring skill and patience. This textile technique is believed to have originated in India, and is traditionally passed from one generation to the next. Master carvers trace a design motif onto a wood block then tap the design into the wood to guide chiseling a re lief pattern. Fabric is pre-washed then pinned in place on a long printing table. An ink master mixes color and skilled printers block print ink to cloth, slowly and meticulously repeating the process along the fabric length to create beautiful, unique textiles. The printed fabric is then heated to set and bond ink, followed by washing and pressing before cutting and stitching. Imperfections including ink density and block alignment are characteristic of this ancient printing method.
