    Sanganeri Block Printed Dupattas - A Gorgeous Weave that is a Must-Have in your Wardrobe:

    Sanganeri hand block printing on fabrics is a traditional fabric pattern designing form originating in the 16th century in Rajasthan. Traditionally, this delicate, detailed pattern on fabrics was made against a muted coloured background, and the printed designs are exceptionally complex and intricate. First, a wooden block is carved and hallowed to form creases and edges in the pattern of vines, flowers, intricate designs etc... Then this block is dipped in fabric dyes and printed all over the fabric that has been prepared and dyed previously to create a gorgeous and vibrant background for the designs and motifs.
