What is block printing?

Block printing refers to the printing technique of pressing and stamping fabric with carved wooden blocks filled with color. “Hand blocked”  or “hand block printing” are other terms that refer to block printing.  Block printing has been used in India since at least the 12th century, and the method is thought to be 2,000 years old.
