Breezy Block Prints from India

Block prints have always been a fascination for me and I was disappointed that its not easy to shop for block prints decor in Canada. But thanks to the internet , one can get block printed decor and fabrics online. 
Block printing is widely used in India and the most prevalent states promoting this art in India are the states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab, West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh in India.

If you live in India, you have an array of stores that sell block printed fabrics and decor. A few of my favourite stores that I haunt in India are:

1. Anokhi for their indo western chic dresses

2. Soma for beautiful accessories and decor

3. FabIndia for decor

I am super happy that you can find block print fabrics and decor this side of the globe as well.  Find some block print inspiration from India from these stores...
