Blocks of Beauty

Hand-block printing is one of the earliest and simplest forms of textile printing. Some consider it the most artistic; the distressed look can't be replicated by a machine. The design is first carved out of a wooden block. The printer then covers the block with dye and presses it firmly onto the cloth striking it smartly on the back. The fabric is then turned into a variety of products from travel accessories to everyday home furnishings.
