The ancient art of using wooden blocks to create imprints on textile, originated in Japan and China, further coming to the the exotic and culturally rich land of India. Motifs are carefully engraved onto flat and smooth blocks of wood by skilful hands, and these blocks, once ready for Printing, are dipped in colourful hues of pigments and then pressed upon cloth to create an imprint. The cloth just carries the print, but these blocks carry the spirit of the adroit chiseller and one can still catch whiffs of paint from them, evoking a pleasant yearning for the mystical past.
Inspired by the simplicity and beauty of the traditional wooden blocks, 'Artisanal Blocks of India-2: A Peek Into India' preserves their legacy in an aesthetic yet utilitarian manner, making it appropriate for a contemporary context. This collection is a carefully curated range of wall decors, which are creatively designed out of these traditional Sheesham wooden blocks, elegant little keepsakes that can create a sense of taking one back to the past, redolent of ancient culture. These delicate little artefacts can not only add an extra touch of grace to your homes, but they can also serve to be useful in your everyday life.
