Amazing craftsmanship and work process!
Mar 2020
Seeing the process from carving the blocks to the final designs was intriguing. I have a small amount of knowledge regarding fabric printing from back at home from my studies but seeing the process here in Jaipur was amazing. The detail put into the wooden hand blocks by the craftsmen who have no training, they just create from what they see and is already made is astonishing. After seeing the blocks being carved we went to the workshop, where on each floor long lengths of fabric were being printed and dried. After seeing the large scale process I was invited to have a go at a repeated single flower design in the washroom area of the workshop. It was great to try my hand at the precision

Amazing Learning Experience! Block Printing
Jan 2020
This was an amazing experience! I didn’t know what to expect, but I was eager to learn about Hand Block printing. This tour did not disappoint! Our guides Raj and Ballu were extremely knowledgeable and very humours. Everyone in the workshop was also eager to share their craftsmanship with us.

We learned all about Hand Block printing and then we got to try and make some fabric ourselves!

After the tour is also a great time to buy some scarfs and fabric :). They were much cheaper and better quality than anything you can find in the tourist shops.

I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone!

Loved the Hand block printing experience. The experience provided by the host was authentic and genuine. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to experience or learn about the world famous hand block printing from Rajasthan. The host is knowledgeable and friendly and had also helped us with planning the rest of our trip in Rajasthan. Thanks for an amazing time :)
