Originating from the heart of block printing, we largely explore and cater in hand block prints of Jaipur and places nearby. The detailed and exquisite form of Sanganeri print, Dabu print, Bagru print and Jahota print dominates our print collection. We also try to experiment with several other printing techniques of India.
Dabu print is a traditional ‘mud-resist’ printing technique of Bagru. Traditionally made with natural dyes of Indigo and Kashish, Dabu print can be identifed with amplifed nature inspired motifs. Peacock, sunfower, cornstalks, mango booti and animal fgures are some of the commonly popular motifs of this print. The printing technique involves several stages of dyeing and displays unique depth and beauty
Print originated from the small town of Rajasthan (Bagru). Featured with unique hand block art followed by natural colors. These art are mainly crafted with the help of wooden blocks over plain cotton fabric. Various motifs such as Aath Kaliya, Chopard, and Kamal are some designs that make Bagru print a different one. Although it is ecofriendly and preferable to print for years.
Originating from Sanganer, a village in southern parts of Jaipur, the Sanganeri print gained popularity because of its intricate floral detailing and varied color palette. The print can be identified with its small floral and geometric patterns. Finesse in the structure of blocks makes the print unique. The Sanganeri print has been given the Geographical Indication (GI) tag by the Government of India.
