Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing

The Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing, dedicated to the art of block printing from old traditions to contemporary design, is located in a magnificently restored haveli in the shadow of Amber Fort, and a mere ten minute walk through the cobbled streets of Amber, the historic capital of Rajasthan.

The permanent exhibition displays a varied selection of block printed textiles alongside images, tools and related objects – all chosen to provide an in-depth look into the complexity of this ancient tradition.

You can watch masters carve intricate wooden printing blocks and you can purchase a T-shirt and print it yourself.
