Block Printers of Sanganer,
Info : Block Printers of Sanganer
Sanganer, 12 km south of Jaipur, but long since caught up in the urban creep of the capital of Rajasthan, is the traditional home of block printing in the region and still home to block printers by family occupation.
This experience is principally for craft enthusiasts or families wanting to get involved and actually try their hand at block printing done the traditional way, but it is nonetheless, a fun and interesting excursion for anyone interested in Indian cottage industry.
You will have a private tour of the factory, a converted house with a traditional set up, where you can observe all the various stages of the block printing process, still carried out by members of the areas traditional printer families. This is followed by a chance to get your hands dirty and get involved in printing yourself a table cloth or a scarf.
It’s fun and engaging and the sort of access that you’d be highly unlikely to get in the more regulated west, if traditional cottage industry on this scale exists at all. Children and big kids will really enjoy getting their hands dirty too.
