Completely printed by hand with carved wooden blocks, no two were ever exactly alike...and the price for these treasures was around $4.00!

Block printed by artisans in Jaipur, India using a process which is thousands of years old. Patterns are carved and chiseled into wooden blocks. The blocks are then coated with ink and pressed firmly onto soft cotton fabric to create a continuous pattern. No two textiles are exactly alike. The unique characteristics and irregularities are what make these items so special.
