Block printing by hand

Craft & Design

This is a great demo of block printing in India. (not my voice on the video) It’s amazing how accurately the printer can line up the successive prints by hand. The blocks themselves are gorgeous as objects; I have some that I’ve used in mold-making for casting glass.

    There is a wonderful store in Delhi that makes shirts using this process, but in addition to that they do all kinds of dying and it’s all natural.

    Very cool.
