GAZAB- From Artisans to Dealers
Rajasthan, though a hinterland is very rich in it’s handloom and handicrafts. You all must be aware of the world famous block printing method of adorning a fabric. The wooden blocks are intricately carved by hand by the talented artisans. The patterns are designed on drafts and one pattern could take upto 5 blocks, depending on colours involved in the design. The fabric is then laid out and stretched mostly on a semi soft surface such as layers of spreaded sheets or blanket. The craftsmen then dip the block in a pre mixed dye solution of the desired colour, place it on the fabric, stomp! stomp! And voila, the imprint is there. Though it sounds super easy, but it’s not.
