Sanganer is a town situated in Jaipur district, Rajasthan, 15 km south of state capital Jaipur. It is famous for textile printing, handmade paper industry, and Jain temples. Sanganer prints are one of its own kinds, for the reason that patterns in bright colours are always printed on white backgrounds. Sanganeri Hand block printing received the geographical indication (GI) tag in 2010.
Sanganer, just outside of Jaipur is where blocks are carved from teak and rosewood and the fabric is still printed by hand as its been done since the 11th century. Miles of fabric hanging or laid across roofs to dry, cows sleeping in the middle of 4 lanes of traffic, and open storefronts with men sitting crossed legged carving intricate designs.
