Block printing is a traditional method of printing patterns onto textiles, using engraved wooden blocks. This method has a documented history dating back to the Indus Valley civilisation, which existed between 3500 and 1300 BC. During this time, the export of textiles, especially cotton, was confirmed, and Harappan artists were known to be familiar with mordants, as evidenced by the discovery of needles, spindles, and cotton fibres dyed with Madder, a red pigment, at the Mohenjo-daro site.

Block printing is a slow and labor-intensive process that requires the human touch. The subtle variances and imperfections created by the human hand are what makes block printing so special, whether it be in the carving of the wooden blocks or the imprinting of the designs onto the cloth surface.

With over 200 unique designs to choose from, Bbaawri's designer Tussar Silk Suits are a must-have addition to your traditional attire collection this season.
