Hand Block Printing of Maharashtra

Hand Block Printing of Maharashtra


The practitioners of this craft in Maharashtra are mainly migrants from other parts of India. The painting is done with delicately carved wooden and brass blocks. The cloth on which hand-printing is done is either hand-woven silk or mill-made chiffon cloth. The results are multi-colour designs in traditional patterns. The 'Tree of Life' motif is very widely used.
