The Art of Block Printing
The art of block printing is native to India & flourished since the 12th century. Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan is one of the famous centers practicing this traditional craft. Block printing is a labor intensive process requiring time, team work & special skill. Carvers cut designs into blocks of wood or brass. The printers then print with the blocks on fabric set on printing tables. A single pattern may be printed 4 to 5 times depending on the colors used in the design. Artisans require high degree of accuracy and precision to reveal the intrinsic designs of the blocks. Custom designs and different colors can be used making each block printed product unique.
Our quilts are a creation of this traditional craft. The 100% cotton filling inside and fine hand quilting makes the quilt adequately warm and soft.
