Woodblock printing is an ancient art, requiring many skilled craftsmen, among them block makers, a color master, (the dyes are made by hand), and precise printers. Skills are usually handed down from father to son. Printing a design requires between 5-15 different blocks. The printer hand stamps the cloth between 700-1000 times to create 3 meters of printed fabric. After 100 meters, the handcarved teak blocks wear out and must be carved again.
