Purple & Black Combination Hand Block Printed Skirt


Hand block printing is an ancient art form of design in India which has been practised for centuries. It is an art form in which the artisan uses a hand-carved teak wood block to create handprinted designs using traditional Indian motifs on natural fabrics. The motifs are first traced on the wooden block by a master craftsman who then patiently chips away at it to carve a design and stamp. The wood block is then dipped in dye and then stamped by hand on to cotton or silk fabrics to create designs of great complexity and beauty. This skirt in black and deep purple has been blocked printed by artisans of Madhya Pradesh and has been designed and created especially for Ranakah by the designer. This is the only kind of its piece and there is no other piece in this design. The yoke around the waist is in free size, streamlines the fit and has a  drawstring to pull and tie it up with. The body of the skirt is constructed in tapering panels which give a sleek silhouette to a regular figure. The drawstring is edged with colourful tassels handmade from wool. From the cut to the styling and the decorative touches all are specially created for Ranakah and are unique to the label.  Please do note that this is a one and only piece in this print in this collection of Ranakah. There is no other piece in this print and colour in Ranakah collection at the moment.

Please note that since this is a hand block printed fabric in vegetable dyes, hence there are likely to be colour gradations or a little bit of unevenness in the print, but these imperfections only add to the charm of this handcrafted fabric.
