We are so thrilled that the BBC have presented an article about block printing. It is important to know some of the history of textiles and the fact that the Great British Sewing Bee have featured block printing in their programme is fabulous – when you go to India, you see how important this particular textile technique is to their economy. Also to the lives and welfare of the carpenters and printers. Block printing is still very much alive today. You can see this block printing industry alive today on our Colouricious Textile Holidays
