Block printing refers to the printing technique of pressing and stamping fabric with carved wooden blocks filled with color.
The artisans dip the block into the dye, press it firmly onto the fabric, and then hit it with a mallet. This process is repeated over and over again, by only the steadiest hands, until the pattern has completely covered the length of fabric.
It is extremely time consuming and requires precision so that there are no breaks in the motif. Once the printing is complete and the color has set, the fabric is thoroughly washed and dried.
