About CHANDERI: Referred to as ‘woven air’ because of its transparency and the sheer texture of the fabric, Chanderi dupattas are set apart by their light weight and glossy texture that is different from any other textile woven or produced in mass in the country. About HAND BLOCK PRINTING: Hand block printing is a centuries old Indian art form that utilizes a hand carved teak wood block that is dipped in dye and stamped by hand onto cotton or silk. The design for the block is usually a traditional Indian motif. The motif is traced onto a block by a master craftsman who then chips away at the block to create a stamp. Good printing requires skill and practice in order to create uniformity and clear block printing patterns. Small variations in the printing add to the unique charm of these handmade fabrics.
