Archil Designs - Hand Block Printed Bandana
20" x 20" hand block printed bandana.
This ancient technique begins by carving designs into wood blocks. Dye is then applied to the carvings, which are stamped methodically onto fabric or paper. Carving and printing is tedious, requiring the attention of a trained and well practiced artisan. Passed down through generations, like a family heirloom. This traditional technique has endured, rendering the maker's hand visible in the age of automation that seeks to erase it.
