How It's Made

Artisans apply block print patterns to ‘kora’ - unbleached natural cotton fabric. To start printing, an artisan evenly applies dye to a hand-carved wooden block. The fabric is then hand-stamped, firmly and steadily, leaving a printed pattern. The artisan must add dye frequently to maintain the same intensity of color. Once the artisan has finished printing with a specific color and block, the artisan cleans the block and must often wait for the cloth to dry before continuing. This is a deceptively simple art - each piece features dozens, if not hundreds of careful impressions. This artisan group, based in West India, focuses on women from low-income households, slum communities and offers skill-building and employment opportunities.
