These Natural Habitat wood block printed table runners measure 13 x 60 inches. The wood blocks are hand carved by artisans. Each color is printed with a different block to complete the motif being printed. Altogether there can be as many as 16 blocks to create a 5 color design.
The colors used for printing are derived from non toxic chemical and mineral dyes. They also use vegetable dyes. Chemicals dyes have replaced vegetable pigments to withstand present day washing and color-fast requirements and to allow for a wider range of colors. A block printed cloth reflects the touch of a human hand, the sensibility and skill of the craftsman, making every piece unqiue.
These products are handmade using traditional craft techniques. Minor variations in size and color may occur.
