Hand block printing, Rajasthan

Jaipur, RAJASTHAN - Hand wood block printing

I loved the hand block prints in Rajasthan so much I thought I'd share some pictures with you on my blog. Hand block printing is a labour-intensive process that requires a lot of, skill, patience, effort and time. Rajasthan is the most colourful state in India and Jaipur is its vibrant capital. There are many different motifs used in traditional block printing and colourful prints of birds, animals, human figures, gods and goddesses are very popular. Since India is rich and abundant in its natural resources, most of its arts and craft forms derive raw materials and design influence from nature
