Dastkari Haat Samiti

Black on white and white on black prints have been used to signify white paper and black ink on two cotton saris printed in Sanganer.

The wood blocks were specially carved in different sizes for the Akshara project. The peepal leaf form is embellished with random letters in Kannada to form a textured pattern within it. The black and white replicates the usual ink of the written or printed word on a white sheet of paper.
