These wooden stamps are hand carved from seasoned teak and were originally used for block printing on textiles in India. They are no longer suitable for use and many were being used as firewood until our fair trade partner Aspiration International began exporting them. These blocks can be used for making wrapping paper, cards or printing on fabric. Use a paint roller to apply paint or fabric dye to the stamp and then gently press down on paper or fabric. This is for one printing block, as these are assorted products it will be luck of the draw which block you receive.
