BLOCK BEAUTY – All that we do

Block Beauty is a one stop shop for the art of block printing,
Starting with blocks in all sizes and designs, we use teak wood that is very strong and long lasting.
We also customize blocks. Any design you wish can be carved by our professional block makers.
Our block makers have been carving blocks for over 2 decades. They create designs {buttas} from 1 inch to 12 inches.
Border designs from 3 inches to 6 inches and all round designs from 4 by 4 inches to 10 by 10 inches.
The price of our blocks depends on the size and workmanship that is required for that design.

The Intensive Process
The blocks are treated with a white paste on the top, after which the design is drawn. The block maker makes a mark with a dotted line using an iron tool and
begins to carve, it could take him one day or upto a week to complete the carving before it is ready for printing. The blocks are oiled well to make sure they are
long lasting. We also teach you how to take care of the blocks that you buy from us.

We take orders for printing on cloth. Clients can choose from our selection of blocks or even give us designs that can be carved out for them.

We have introduced starter kits with materials that are used in a professional studio and instructional videos that will teach you how to use these kits.
