Indian wood block print carving

Thinking seriously of future plans involving... the Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing in Jaipur. Anokhi, a pioneer of hand block printing for the export market, is known for its success in preserving and revitalizing traditional Indian textile skills, and for its involvement with educational and social projects in Rajasthan, India.   Each pattern starts with carving one to thirty print blocks out of teak and then applying the pattern with vegetable dye on the highest quality material, usually a sublime gauzy cotton.  I have one stunning vintage Anokhi piece in my closet (I'm guessing mid 70's era, found at the Salvation Army in Philadelphia). Even though the skirt is almost entirely covered with color, you can see bits of the pure cotton in between. The construction is also meticulously done with side pockets, side buttons, French seams, and a delicate trim below the skirt yoke.

These are the block I have collected for years. I taught women how to print fabric in Nepal.

Hand Carved Wooden Block Printed Indian Stamps - Wood Printing Stamping Supplies

carved fabric stamps

Batik stamps.

Those of us who are happier with paint-splattered fingers rather than a fresh manicure tend to be kindred spirits so I thought you might enjoy a peek at the wrapping paper Elizabeth James makes for herself. With degrees in Art History and Interior Design, Elizabeth is the creative force behind Pacific & Rose hand-blocked textiles. And I know you've seen various types of rubber stamps applied to paper many times before, but I really like how Elizabeth uses large-scale blocks to achieve a look that resembles fabric. She also experiments on newsprint, as well as butcher paper, for a multi-layered effect. For Mother's Day, if you have a mom who appreciates art or the unexpected, why not put a new spin on the standard newspaper-as-gift-wrap concept? Or if her taste is more classic, create something unapologetically pretty using pristine craft paper as a base. A range of Indian woodblocks are available through Pacific & Rose's online shop (along with curtains and those terrific kitchen linens seen in past posts). Related posts to get the creative juices flowing: The Zucchi Collection and Setting the Mood. A word of advice: Elizabeth says it is necessary to use a blockprinting ink. She describes it as very tacky and sticky but notes that a regular paint will seep into the crevices of the block. She squeezes a little ink onto a flat surface (piece of tile), then rolls a rubber brayer in the ink to cover the brayer, and then rolls the brayer onto the block. When she places the ink-covered block down on the paper, she gives it a good thwack with a rubber mallet, to better transfer the ink. The blockprinting ink may be purchased at art supply stores, or a site for textile artists, Dharma Trading.

 [Above, Elizabeth James's wood block collection.] [Robshaw with Martha Stewart via John Robshaw Textiles.] So, what has it been? More than seven years since John Robshaw appeared on Martha Stewart's show and demonstrated his block printing techniques? I remember recording the episode. But I guess it took nearly five years of sporadic blogging about block-printed fabric (traditional Indian and contemporary) to finally prompt me to purchase my own lone wood block from Elizabeth James,  the founder of Pacific & Rose hand-blocked textiles.  [©Julia Lynn] Stacey Bradley's printing blocks and brayers are for fine art, not textile design, still Julia Lynn's recent photos of the tools further inspired me.   [Photo by Henry Wilson as seen in Selvedge, issue 24.] [Image via Pacific & Rose.]  Feeling pleased with last year's DIY upholstered sawhorse desk, I'm now motivated to try my hand at a block-printed pillow, and although it will probably be February before the project is posted here, I have pulled some tips and resources from the archives. First, advice from Elizabeth: 1. Use a blockprinting ink. She describes it as very tacky and sticky but notes that a regular paint will seep into the crevices of the block. The blockprinting ink can be purchased at art supply stores, or a site for textile artists, like Dharma Trading. 2. Squeeze a little ink onto a flat surface, such as a tray, then roll a rubber brayer into the ink. Next, roll the brayer onto the block. [Brayer via Dharma Trading.] 3. When placing the ink-covered block down on the fabric, try giving it a good thwack with a rubber mallet, to better transfer the ink. (See images of more tools here.) [Image via The Zucchi Collection.] John's suggestions can be found here. For general inspiration, visit The Zucchi Collection, home to 56,000 printing blocks used to produce handprinted fabric over the course of three centuries from 1785 to 1935. And see these past posts: Woman Shops Globe, Seema's Studio, More Block Prints, and On the Borderline Again. If you have any tips of your own, please share!

Indian Block Prints

These wood blocks are used to hand stamp the elaborate patterns so intricately applied to Indian fabrics.

INDIA - Did you ever think about how "hand blocked" fabrics from India are actually made? These wood blocks are used to hand stamp the elaborate patterns so intricately applied to the fabrics. It's an amazing process and fascinating to watch. Very time consuming!

Ajarakh uses the process of resist printing in which hand block printing is done on designated areas in the pattern which are pre-treated to resist penetration by the dye.

This art of Indian block printing has always been labor intensive and has survived since centuries because of the beauty of handmade products. The printers may require 30 blocks for completing a design as every color requires a different block. To come up with a unique design altogether, approximately 20 people are enforced into doing the job. The process of block printing has been used for centuries and is still in vogue. Now this is something worth having in everybody's wardrobe!

Every dusty road trip that we made into the small villages in Kutch, Gujarat turned into a journey marveling at the abundance of traditional art & crafts of the region. One fact that really stood out was the high density of different traditional crafts in the Kutch region of Gujarat. One afternoon we understood the intricacies of the Mutwa embroidery in Dordo village, next evening we were engulfed in a colorful world of vegetable dyes used in block-printing in Kukma Village. Ajrakhpur, near Kukma is where the tradition of Ajrakh block printing is kept alive by the Khatri community, whose ancestors came from the Sindh region in Pakistan. Dr. Ismail Mohammad Khatri is one of the few left who carry on this tradition of laborious but beautiful craft of Ajarkh printing. Carrying forward the tradition, his son Junaid Khatri. Ajarkh derives it's name from 'Aaj ke din rakh' or keep it for the day, the processing of Ajrakh printing is pretty long drawn with each stage involving many days. Dr. Khatri explained that the process involved procuring the best cotton fabrics, washing, steaming in copper containers. The fabric is then soaked in a mixture of dung, oil an water to make it soft. Dried for a couple of days and then re-soaked with other natural ingredients to bleach and make it ready for printing. Ajarakh uses the process of resist printing in which hand block printing is done on designated areas in the pattern which are pre-treated to resist penetration by the dye. Natural vegetable dyes like Indigo, Turmeric, Lime, Rice and many others are used to create intricate geometrical block print patterns that are typical of Ajrakh printing. Block makers who carve these intricate Ajrakh designs are also very few these days. The intricate patterned blocks stained with natural vegetable dyes. Wooden Blocks stored in different boxes... We were amazed at the various designs on the wooden blocks and prayed with all my heart for this wonderful craft to flourish. I bought this beautiful craft in the form of a dupatta that I will drape with a sense of pride and great respect for these artisans who carry on the age-old laborious craft. I have tried to style the fabric in my bare home with few interesting finds from a yard sale that I went to last weekend:-) If you come across Ajrakh blockprinted fabric in any craft fair do buy and support the craftsmen. The very few left who practice this craft. (Images by Arch)

Back when I lived in Santa Barbara, I would walk down State Street lined with their posh restaurants and variety of stores and in a vacant lot between Pierre LaFonde and a Scientology building is a spread of all things India:  pillows, cloth, blankets, skirts, bags, trinket holders, incense and such.  I would always stop by and take a look around, such beautiful things were laid out on tables out in the open.  The cloths have printed on them the beautiful traditional Indian prints, which I've never known until today how it was done. I assumed that the Indian print designs were done by machine like most everything else today and maybe some are today, but I found that genuine Indian goods go through  a way more intricate process done by hand called Indian Block Printing, a piece of wood is chipped away at to create the design wanted in order to use as a stamp for the designs that are printed onto the cloth.  After watching the below video of Indian Block Printing I feel a new sense of awe and have a greater appreciation for all things Indian. Enjoy watching the process of India print blocking.
