Block printing in Jaipur
Everyone told me to look for the block printing when I was planning a recent trip to Jaipur. So on my trip, my tour guide introduced me to Rishi at the Handicraft Haveli. Rishi's team of block printers create these incredible works of art. Each sheet takes hours to create, as the patterns are complex and require several blocks pressed down over other block patterns, just to create one. Rich in colors made from vegetable dye and carefully printed on cotton and silk fabric, these pieces making sleeping so much nicer!. And my bed has never looked better. Richi's shop also includes antiques and pieces you won't find anywhere else in Jaipur.
