Bagru Block Printing Workshop | India Craft Week 2019

About The Craft

For at least 400 years, Bagru has been home to the Chhipa — a clan whose name comes either from a Gujarati word meaning “to print” or from combining two Nepal Bhasa words: ‘chhi’ (“to dye”) and ‘pa’ (“to leave something to bask in sun”). Hand block printing has been recognized as a craft through generations in different clusters of India. Each cluster follows its distinctive style & methods, uses locally available natural materials and motifs of some specialty. 'Bagru' print is that kind of centuries old traditional art of hand block printing still alive.
