Cover of the book Blue-printing blocks

Blue-printing, also called resist-printing or block-printing, is a special method of printing patterns on cloth.

It is essentially a process during which blue-printing blocks transfer pap-like, gluey substance (the resist) onto fabric. When the fabric is dyed blue, the resist prevents the dye from reaching the fabric and becoming bound to its fibres.
