What is Block Print?
Block printing (also called relief printing) is an ancient method of carving a material (such as a block or plate) into a design, and then printing an impression of that carved surface with ink. Often, this technique is used to print patterns onto textiles and papers.
The art of printing with wooden blocks is particularly prevalent and used historically in East Asia. These intricate patterns are created with carved wood blocks, creating a perfectly imperfect style that is adored throughout the world.
This is an ancient technique, and it is also the slowest of all textile printing methods still in use today. That’s just one of the reasons that it feels so very special!
While some of the objects available in today’s retail landscape are still authentically blocked and handmade, many are machine made to simply replicate the traditional style of block printing.
