Learn the traditional art of block printing


| May 15, 2020

Situated in the shadows of the historic 11th-century Amber Fort, the Anokhi Museum was established in 2005 as an initiative to preserve and conserve the art of traditional hand printed textiles from the celebrated towns of Sanganer and Bagru. It is probably the only museum of its kind in the world where one can observe the entire method of hand-block printing from the carving of wooden blocks to the transformation of raw fabric into a piece of art. The museum, set in a heritage building with galleries scattered around different floors, is supported by the creators of the Anokhi clothing brand, which sells hand-block print garments through dedicated retail outlets across India.
