Elephant Elephant Blockprint #11


Hand blockprinted fabrics like this are true pieces of textile art. Designs are first carved by hand on teak wood blocks and printed one color at a time onto running fabric. Darker colors undergo a mud resist process before the fabric is submerged in various dye vats. This labor intensive process of hand block printing and dying is a traditional technique that dates back hundreds of years in India and other parts of south and Central Asia.
