Hand Block Printing of Udaipur, Rajasthan

Hand Block Printing of Udaipur, Rajasthan


In Udaipur and Nathdwara the block prints are on saris, wraps, and quilt covers. The designs are religious in nature and are linked with Srinathji, a part of the Pichwai tradition. The prints on the cloth are done with sandal wood blocks which leave a perfume in the cloth. The main technique involves placing the block directly on the fabric for the design-transfer to be effected.
