The art of Ghalamkar or wood-block printing on cotton cloth has been a specialty in Esfahan, Iran for centuries. The beautiful repeated designs are made with handcrafted wood-blocks and by impressing four or five organic colours, like turmeric, rose, pomegranate skin and grape juice, continuously by hand. After the prints are finished, the cloth is boiled in white alum which fixes the colours. You can wash these cloths up to 80 degrees Celsius without worrying about fading colours!
