BLOCK PRINTING

Kalamkari printing is a slow technique that has been practiced in Rajasthan for over 500 years. The process starts by carving the design into the Sheesham wood block. Our signature print requires three separate blocks to be hand-carved. 

Once the blocks are carved, the printer mixes the colours ready for stamping.

The colour block is then stamped repeatedly onto the fabric. The subtle variations in pattern and finish are characteristic of this slow handmade process. 

Watch as the master printer stamps the three blocks required to create the fabric used in our Kajol and Mumtaz sets.
