What is block printing?
Wooden block printing is a technique used for printing images, texts and patterns. It is widely used throughout East Asia. It is the process of printing patterns onto textiles or paper by using carved wood blocks. Block printing is one of the oldest, simplest and slowest forms of all textile printing methods. It is believed to date back 4,500 years in China. However, was adopted and widely used in India since the 12thCentury. It is here where wood block printing has achieved the most prominence and the most sought after patterns. They hold great expertise and secrets to natural dyeing, particularly with mordants (the metallic salts that give colour vibrancy and colourfastness).
