Woodblock printing and carpet weaving in Jaipur, India

Jaipur, in Rajasthan called the pink city is world famous for it’s handcrafts. On my way to visit, The Palace of the Winds, I got to stop at a woodblock printing company, as well carpet weaving. Everything is done by hand….

  1. Cornelia, having been to Jaipur several years ago (and as the owner of some woodblocks and fabric printed by hand using them) I greatly enjoyed your mini photo essay of these artisans at work. Did you bring any special souvenirs home with you?

    • Tricia, of course I couldn’t resist to shop for a few items filling my suitcase, it was way to tempting. When you were in Jaipur did you publish a post on your blog? Isn’t Jaipur a beautiful place, I enjoyed visiting it.

  2. Wonderful photo essay, Cornelia.

  3. India has such a rich culture and you are able to explore the details and the exhuberant intensity of life and colour in the places you visit. I enjoy seeing the pride and happiness of the artisans when you photograph them with/at their work – would that we all could feel that, too.

  4. You have wonderfully captured the Pictures of the Block printing.
    Such things become nostalgia as time passes by, when we adopt to newer things and technologies.
    They will be reminiscences; holding them in your camera is not only a memory but shall tomorrow be a document of history.
    Don’t’ You think so.
    Thanks

    • Thank you, Mr.Shiva. I absolutely agree with you, that’s one of the many things I enjoyed so much during my trip in India. If it was watching people working hard to produce bricks in a brick factory or processing sugar cane into sugar syrup or making paper in a paper factory……etc. I have always been a down to earth person and capturing with my camera the real world of people who create wonderful things without much technology has certainly enhanced my work and life. Thank you. Best wishes from Cornelia
