Block Printing Community

Location of the community: Jaipur and Sanganner, Jaipur.

Name of the local entrepreneur/NGO/master craftsman: Anjana Gujjar

Number of artisans: 20

About the group:

The block/screen printing and quilting community comprising of around 100 artisans are based in Sanganer, in the outskirts of Jaipur. The block prints of Sanganer are mostly executed on a white or offwhite background, using screen printers or wooden blocks. They are colorful patterns of sunflowers, roses, geometric designs. Sanganer prints are known for their fine and intricate detailing.

Quilting is the done mainly by the women and three or four standard patterns have been in vogue for as long as anyone can rememberGol (concentric circles), phool (flowers), paan (the betel leaf) and lahariya (vertical stripes zigzagging down the face of the quilt) Two women work together on one quilt and between them they manage roughly two quilts a day, depending on the complexity of the design.

The local cottage unit Kirti Exports along with CFM Market Linkages provides designs inputs which the artisans convert into final products.
