The unique silk fabric produced in Chanderi is the result of traditional methods of hand-weaving that have been developed over the centuries, and passed down through generations. One of the oldest types of printmaking, Block Printing has been around for thousands of years dating back as early as the fifth century BC. Essentially a carved material covered in ink to transfer an image onto fabric, the technique of block printing is very enchanting and inspiring and is done using different materials like wood, linoleum, rubber and many more. Lengthy and complex, the process of creating a block itself is quiet elaborate. Right from sketching a design, transferring it onto the block and finally carving the design on the block can take anywhere from an hour for small pieces to several weeks or even months depending on the size and detail of the image. These blocks are then used by skilled craftsmen to imprint the design onto the fabric. Depending on the number of colors and the intricacy of the designs, they may have to hand stamp the fabric some 500 to 2000 times to complete one saree!
