IMAGE GALLERY KEYWORDS YOUR VIEWS

Handblock printing is one of the most oldest form of creating design on fabrics manually. The art of block printing and making is heavily recognised as a lot of effort goes in these processes. Traditional block making has been followed as a practice by the natives of Pethapur village in Gandhinagar, Gujarat since ages. It is situated 40 kms away from Ahmedabad, which is the biggest hub of market and sale. It is the only enduring centre of woodblock production and carving in India. The block makers of Pethapur believe that many enturies ago, women got frustated by wearing the plain white clothes and such a printing device was made with bangles that could colour the cloth and print patterns.
