Heritage: Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing

The Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing has been vital in the revival and conservation of hand block printing.

The Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing, within the Chanwar Palkiwalon ki Haveli in the old city of Amer, showcases a collection of 160 pieces chosen from nearly 20,000 garments, fabric swatches and an equally dizzying number of wooden blocks. Hand block printing is intrinsic to Jaipur, Sanganer and Bagru.

The museum is a virtual repository of information on all facets of hand block printing from its near-mythic origins in the region to its current success as contemporary textiles that clothe and touch us.
