New Wooden Printing Blocks Now In

WOODEN PRINTING BLOCKS FROM INDIA

THE MOVEABLE TYPE OF FABRIC DESIGN


Block printed cloth is incredible.
But where do all those wooden blocks come from?
From another entire community: the community of block carvers. Maiwa keeps a large number of block carvers in business. Wooden blocks eventually wear out and need to be recut. We also commission blocks to sell in our stores. Some are designed by us, and some designed by the very clever geometric imaginations of the carvers themselves. We've just had a huge order arrive - and they are fantastic!


From simple figures to a set of four Ajrakh blocks
$3.50 — $198.95
