Guest Post: Sakhi Fashions - Hand Block Printing On Sarees


Neeta Rajendran is our guest blogger who along with her mother, runs Sakhi Fashions, an online fashion house based in India.

India has a rich tradition in ancient arts and crafts, and hand block printing is one of them. They have been used to adorn home linen and garments and can be found on daily wear cotton salwars to more festive silk sarees.

Hand block printing involves a series of processes.  First, wooden blocks are hand carved or etched with a pattern on the surface.  The blocks are then dipped in dye, and transferred on to the textile, such as a cotton or silk saree, which is stretched on a flat work surface and fixed with pins to prevent the fabric from shifting during the process.  Usually, the border of the saree is printed first, followed by the body.



Design trends for hand block printed textiles change frequently, just the way fashion does, but the art doesn't lose its allure.  From traditional motifs to geometric patterns, large prints to intricate designs, there are a variety of styles.  As a result, Indian women can't ever have too many hand-block printed sarees in their wardrobes – some for different seasons and others for special occasions.  These include designer hand block printed sarees, such as the ones below, from Sakhi Fashions.
