How it all began..
Laura, a Finn, met her Indian partner on a visit to India in 2002. Almost a decade later, in Jaipur they chanced upon the carving of the printing blocks that were used in the ancient art of block printing. Captivated by the art form involved in the making of these blocks and envisioning the many possibilities these stamps could be used for, Blockwallah came into being. Block (stamp) wallah (maker) Blockwallah is based in India and believes in ethical work practices and dignity of labour.
We boast the largest collection of printing blocks in the world and over the years have expanded our offerings to include yarns, fibres, fabrics and sari ribbons all sourced from village cooperatives in India. You can also join us on our Craft Tours that take you into the very soul of India.
