In India, the

block print textiles since the 18th century. Hand carved wooden blocks are
dipped in dye and stamped onto the stretched cloth. This process must be
repeated for each color in the printed pattern. The work is done in small,
craftsman uses a wooden block to print cotton fabric.
If you like the style of
Provence in Southern France, you'll be interested to know that these block
prints are "Les Indiennes," the imported Indian cottons that inspired the
French to develop their famous Provencal fabrics, beginning in the 17th
century. You can see the similarities in the vibrant colors and the
small, regularly spaced motifs.
With their historic
background, block print fabrics may be just what you need for your SCA,
LARP, Renaissance Faire, Civil War, reenactor, or other reproduction costumes.

This fabric is brand new, not "vintage." In other
words, it's not used, damaged, or dirty. It is, however, folk art.
Because of the way it's produced, the pattern is not perfectly uniform and there
may be some errant spots of dye. If your project needs greater precision,
you'll be better off with machine printed textiles.
