The Sanganer block-print textiles gained popularity between the 16th and 17th century with the East India Company exporting them in large quantities to Europe. At present, Sanganer has more than 150 printing units employing over 20,000 workers. Sanganer block prints are primarily done on an off-white or pure white background with the use of wooden blocks. You will find vibrant floral patterns and geometric designs imprinted on the fabrics with intricate detailing. The borders of the fabric also showcase a variety of different floral patterns in stylish designs. Some common flower prints used in Sanganer block printing are roses, lotuses, sunflowers, lilies, marigolds, rosettes and lotus buds.
