The History of Hand Block Printing
A traditional printing technique, hand block printing is something that has been used since centuries to create patterns and designs. The technique is believed to have originated in ancient
Egypt, where it was used to create intricate designs on linen and papyrus. The technique then spread to India, where it was used to create intricate patterns on sarees and other traditional garments. Today, hand-block printing is still widely practiced in India, particularly in the Rajasthan region.
At Sootisyahi, we work closely with skilled artisans from Rajasthan who have been practicing the technique since generations. We believe in preserving traditional art forms and supporting the local communities where they originated from. By choosing our hand block printed loungewear, you are not only getting a unique and beautiful product, but also supporting traditional artisans and their families.

The Process of Creating Hand Block Printed Fabrics
Hand block printing is a labor-intensive process that involves carving an intricate design into a block of wood and then using the block to print the design onto fabric. The first step in the process is to create the design, which is typically done by a skilled artist. The design is then carved into a block of wood, usually teak, using a chisel and hammer.
Once the block is carved, it is coated with ink and pressed onto the fabric. The fabric is then left to dry before being washed to remove any excess ink. At Sootisyahi, we use only the highest quality fabrics to create our hand-printed loungewear.
Our fabrics are soft, breathable and comfortable, perfect for lounging at home or running errands. We also take great care in ensuring that our garments are well-sewn and finished, so they will last for years to come. But not only that, we also use natural dyes that are eco-friendly and not harsh to the environment. In addition, we also use sustainable and organic fabrics such as linen and cotton to create loungewear that are grown without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. This way we ensure that our hand block printed loungewear not only looks good but also does good for the environment.
