Block print dresses are one of the most recognised apparel throughout the world. Hand Block print dresses are very mesmerising. Distinct patterns are embossed upon the dresses which give them an alluring grace. Preparing a block print dress has always been an elaborate technique.
Hand block print dresses have their roots seeped deep into Indian tradition and that is the reason why there are hardly any states in India which do not have their own distinct designs and patterns of hand-block printing. Distinct block print dresses can be found in states like Punjab, Gujarat and Andhra to name a few. However, Rajasthan is considered to be the motherland of hand block print dresses. The culture of hand block print dress can be traced back to Mughal era where hand block print dresses were fondly admired by the imperial society.
Block print dresses are made by use of wooden blocks where different patterns and designs are carved out on a wooden block and then such block is filled with colours. The designs and the patterns that are made on the blocks are not fixed and are based solely on the imagination of the block-carver that he wishes to emboss on the dress. The designs and patterns could be a simple geometric formation or more detailed impression.
What differentiates our hand block print dresses is the method of making the dresses. We craft and embose hand blocks manually and these manually done work yield high artistic outcomes which even highly advanced machines fail to yield. The process of creating inexpensive block print dresses starts with the wood block. The carver uses design to cut the block into diverse sizes and patterns. The top block portion has a knob for the printers who print the block on the fabric. Every block has three or four outlets through which the air passes and pinches away extra dye. Various spots are embossed upon the block that the printer uses as an assignment display as they pick and move the block to the next plot of dress. All blocks are soaked in oil for up to fifteen days to make the wood softer.
Earlier, when dresses prepared by way of screen invaded the textile industry it consumed the whole of the hand block print dress business.
