Indian Block Prints at West Elm

I can't even express how obsessed with Indian block printing I am. There are tons of youtube videos that show how they make such unique patterns, even how they carve the wood blocks. I'll show you a few. It takes so much skill. I envy skills like that. The definition of 'meticulous' describes the attention to detail that it takes to carve wood blocks. I am so inspired.... I love that they carve a block, then another to go on top of it to add color, and another for detail. India has been block printing for 4,500 years. Not a thing has changed.
                   These are a few examples that West Elm is featuring.
