Trending Now: What Is Block Print?

You’ve probably heard it mentioned a hundred times in your life, but… what exactly is block print?

Block print is the art of carving wood to then imprint patterns onto fabric or paper. Think of it like a wooden stamp, like the type you might find in the craft store. The practice dates back nearly two thousand years, but it’s never felt as fresh as it does today!

For a quick introduction into the bright and beautiful world of block print, we turned to Pottery Barn’s EVP of Design and Product Development, Monica Bhargava:
