Hand-Block Printing

Saudagiri Printing of Gujarat

The saudagiri printed fabric is quilted with a running stitch. It is massively exported from the central location of production Ahemedabad, to markets in Southeast Asia. Multiple hand block techniques are used to create Saudagiri textiles. They are often characterised by repeated geometric prints, floral and faunal motifs. These motifs were usually inspired from the nature of Gujarat and the most sytlise dones were of the peacock, parrot and goose figures.
