Block printing – Chitgari

Chitgari, or hand block printing, has been part of the ancient traditions of the Tajik and Central Asian region for centuries. The love of the art is apparent and obvious in details and patterns created by such small blocks on such vast and large canvases. Block printing – Chitgari is a hereditary skill, which is passed down from generation to generation in Central Asia.
