Indigo dye printing blocks

There is a tradition of Indigo dyeing in  Hungary. Several workshops continue to dye and resist dye using traditional techniques and equipment.

The following are original indigo dye printing blocks. 140 pieces in total. These blocks were made with metal ribbon and nails and used to apply the wax like substance which would be overdyed. The wax like substance would then  be removed to reveal the patterns in the original colour of the cloth These pieces come from a workshop in Hungary. They are for sale in one lot.  Enquires;
