Hand Block Printing

We got to visit Kilol, a hand block printing textile company. A team of 300 turn out some beautiful clothing. After watching and videoing the process, I of course went to the store and picked up a few items.

Some interesting facts
1. Block printing can only have upto 12 colors on it, not including the base color.
2. Each color is blocked one at a time. The more variety of color, usually the more expensive.
3. At Kilol, every single step is done by hand and in house.

Here is a short video of what we saw. Next time you purchase any block printed piece of fabric, it went through a similar process.
