The traditional process of hand-printing prints on rich natural-colored fabrics has been practiced in Rajasthan for almost 500 years. Woodblock printing was introduced by the Chipa community in the Jaipur region of Rajasthan. The community was originally located in the village of Bagle, an area now famous for its plant-based ink block prints and the Mud Resistance (Dabu). The art of printmaking has been passed down to families and communities for generations and has spread to other areas, such as Sanganer, south of Jaipur in recent decades. In traditional style woodblock printing, a traditional plant-based dye "recipe" is developed within each family and lives on from generation to generation.
