The method to emboss blocks on the fabric is very fascinating. The beauty of the design is dependent upon the mastery of the crafter. It is his mind play that brings forth the serenity in the dress. He carves out intriguing designs on the wooden blocks and fills them with colors. It is only after that the crafter carefully embosses the teak on the dress. Art-play of colors and designs is what one is looking for in their hand-block printed dresses.
