Block printing village

Rajasthan is well known for, among other things, block printed fabrics. In my research for fair trade goods, I found a small organisation in a village outside Jaipur, where the artisans are paid very well. The village has been home to the block printing craft for many generations. Our tour takes us to the village to meet the block carvers, dyers and printers and see their work.

We will also have the opportunity to take part in a block-printing workshop and share lunch with our hosts.
