Block printed

Block printed cloth is one of India’s great technological breakthroughs. The creation of vibrant, colourfast, cotton printing may date back as far as four millennia. An ancient technique that requires great precision and skill, results in beautiful intricate prints created from layer upon layer of natural dyes.

Maiwa actively seeks to support block printers in India, with special focus on the artisans specializing in Ajrakh, Dabu & Kalamkari. We incorporate a large amount of their textiles in our bedding and clothing lines. While we assist in procurement of raw materials, maintaining high standards of quality, and product finishing, the designs remain the realm of the craftperson.
