Block Printed Peasant Sleeve Shift Dress

Block Printing

Block printing is a slow process but highly rewarding. It begins with an artisan chipping and chiselling a block of wood into an intricately patterned stamp. These blocks are then used to stamp dyes (or mud in some cases) onto fabric to give birth to beautiful block printed stories. Grassroot works with rural artisans to create local employment opportunities, empowering every village to become a self-sustaining unit.
