Purvaai works closely with the traditional block print artisans of Bagru and Sanganer in the western Indian state of Rajasthan. They live as a close knit community in these towns as many generations have done before them. Each family may have its own special motifs and designs passed down from generation to generation. The block print dyes are traditionally natural ones made from plants, roots, herbs, flowers, nuts and bark although they now also use azo-free, colour-fast, chemical dyes. The wooden blocks are beautifully hand carved and lovingly preserved for generations together.
