Origin Of Hand Block Printing In India
Given the growing popularity of hand-block-printed sarees in the country, you'd think it was a recent creation. Well, you’ll be surprised to know that Indians have been acquainted with the art of hand block printing since the Indus Valley Civilization which existed around 8,000 years ago. However, it was during the Mughal era that Indian hand block printing not only attained its pinnacle but also gained a foothold in global markets.
The Mughals influenced the Indian block printing style by introducing floral, animal, bird, and curvilinear motifs in addition to the geometric patterns that were used previously. Even today, all of these motifs are used to create hand block printed sarees and other kinds of apparel.
