Product Description

The techniques were introduced under the Mughals and many of our cotton throws and other textiles are made using this simple technology. As this craft, like so many, gives way to ‘improved modern’ methods, we have found many of these wooden block on the market, sadly, but available to be appreciated and even used. We have selected the most interesting patterns.
