Our Vintage Block Print Textile Stamp has been hand-carved by artisans in Rajathan, India. Referred to as the “block” by the master craftspeople who carve them, trained artisans use a small chisel and drill to carve each design into the wood.
To print the textile, blocks are dipped in natural dyes and pressed down onto a long strip of cotton cloth. Traditional block print designs are often complex, and blocks frequently hold just a fragment of the overall final pattern. It can take several steps, printing in layers, to reach a final composition. The art of block printing requires an incredibly steady hand and precise, repetitive movements to execute a master-level design.
The complex carving of each design element creates a beautiful focal point in your room. Use a Vintage Block Print Textile Stamp as one-of-a-kind conversation piece on your bookshelf or coffee table.
This stamp is approximately 6"L x 6.25"W x 3"H.
Each Vintage Block Print Textile Stamp has been individually crafted by hand and no two are exactly alike. Due to the age of each piece, there may be small marks, cracks, scratches and variation in color that is consistent with age and original use. These markings add to the item’s patina, and tell a story of its unique history and significance. Please Contact Us if you have any specific needs or questions.
