The usage of wooden blocks to create prints on textiles is an ancient art that originated in Japan and China which further spread to several parts of the continent of Asia, including the exotic and culturally rich land of India, before reaching the west. Motifs are carefully engraved onto flat and smooth blocks of wood by skilful hands, and these blocks, once ready for Printing, are dipped in colourful hues of pigments and then pressed upon cloth to create an imprint. While these patterns are alluring to look at, largely because of their intricacy and consistency, the wooden blocks in themselves are a chef dƒ??oeuvre. The cloth just carries the print, but these blocks carry the spirit of the adroit chiseller and one can still catch whiffs of paint from them, evoking a pleasant yearning for the mystical past.
Inspired by the simplicity and beauty of the traditional wooden blocks, ƒ??Artisanal Blocks of Indiaƒ?? preserves their legacy in an aesthetic yet utilitarian manner, creating a fusion of sorts, making it appropriate for a contemporary context. This collection is a carefully curated range of souvenirs such as tea light holders, coasters and hooks, which are creatively designed out of these traditional wooden blocks. Made out of Sheesham wood, these products are elegant little keepsakes that can create a sense of taking one back to the past, redolent of ancient culture. This range of products adheres to a minimalistic colour palette of brown and white, allowing the wooden block to speak for itself, not being defined by the bright hues of colours it is so often associated with, thereby celebrated it in all its authenticity. The patterns embellished on these blocks are handcrafted traditional designs and they are carefully hand-painted. Small in dimensions, they can fit into any corner of the house, or they can be terrific gifts to your loved ones. These delicate little artefacts can not only add an extra touch of grace to your homes, but they can also serve to be useful in your everyday life.
