Blockwallah is a Finnish-Indian family company that works directly with rural Indian artisans to produce hand crafted wooden printing blocks.
The art of block-printing goes back over a thousand years, practiced by traditional artisans across the country. Blockwallah stamps are hand carved by skilled artisans in rural India. The carving is done on sustainable hard Indian Teak wood.
The stamps are very good to use on fabric an on smooth surfaces, such as handmade paper. It is best to use a sponge to apply the ink
If used on paper it is helpful to put a soft cloth underneath.
The size of the stamp is 4,5x3,5 cm
Blockwallah strongly believes in ethical work practices as well as dignity of labor. We feel that a business must benefit everybody involved as well as make a difference to the society we live in. Blockwallah also empowers impoverished women in India by providing them with employment throughout the production process.
