Originally from Rajasthan, these sheesham wood blocks were used in the hand block printing industry until they wore out and lost their printing precision. By removing the block handle and adding a simple iron hook, Indian craftsmen give the beautifully hand carved blocks a second life. Through their work, the artisans receive fair pay, health checks and a pension scheme.
We love these old hooks as each one is totally unique. Hand block printing is an old highly skilled tradition and still takes place in many parts of India today. What a great way to up-cycle something old into something new!
