This laborious technique involves up to 12 steps of complex printing with natural dyes and mordants. Each imprint is skillfully overlaid with fine hand carved wooden blocks.
These revivals arerecreated by master artisans in the original block prints and colours - natural madder, indigo and iron-black - cherished by the people of Sindh.
