Our founder, Karen Beeton, is proud to be a part of the Blockwallah design team. As well as having her hand made samples featured on TV and in magazines, many of her pieces travel to trade shows around the world with Laura Vacker – the owner of Blockwallah. We are thrilled to be an official stockist of these beautiful creations.
The art of block-printing goes back over a thousand years, practiced by traditional artisans across the country. Blockwallah stamps are hand carved by skilled artisans in rural India. The carving is done on sustainable hard Indian Teak wood.
Blockwallah stamps come in a range of contemporary and traditional designs, as well as seasonal designs which can be used for printing on both fabric and paper. Popular examples include prints on T-shirts, cards, bags, wall-paper, bed-linen and scrapbooks. These stamps can also be used for clay and body art.
Blockwallah strongly believes in ethical work practices as well as dignity of labour. We feel that a business must benefit everybody involved as well as make a difference to the society we live in. Blockwallah also empowers impoverished women in India by providing them with employment throughout the production process.
