Of prints and paisley

Close on the heels of the Anokhi museum story, here is a photoessay I had done for Marwar magazine on traditional Rajasthani prints and the hand block printing process – these images are from Sanganer and the Anokhi factory, both near Jaipur. The next time, will visit Bagru village too, to complete the story in my head.

  1. Loved the photo essay! Beautiful pics. The entire process of block printing looks so enchanting! To top it all, the dyes are entirely natural and chemical-free. It is a pity that these prints are fast becoming extinct. 🙁
