Craft so beautiful - We just had to frame it !
This majestic wooden printing block in the shape of an Elephant is beautifully hand crafted from soft yet hardy " Sheesham Wood " by Indian artisans following century old traditions of block making, an art learnt from their fore fathers and still used for printing on textiles , paper and other surfaces.
Dipped in vibrant coloured plant dyes, the artisans create the most beautiful prints from these intricately carved blocks in hundreds of designs and shapes which can be seen on most Indian fabric all over the world.
This wooden block has been mounted on rich ivory coloured raw silk inside a beautiful natural brown frame matching the colour of the block.
