Sanganer is a 400-year-old specific kind of hand block printing that originated from Sanganer, a small village on the outskirts of Jaipur.
The Chippa community who migrated due to political trouble caused by Maratha-Mughal war, settled in Sanganer, Bagru, Johota villages.
This artisan community, trained themselves in the occupation of dyeing and printing known as Sanganeri block printing.
The word Chippa is derived from ‘chappa’ or ‘chappna’ which means ‘print’ or ‘to print’ .
These prints are known for their delicate floral patterns which are generally known as buttas.
The prints are done in pure cotton, which are then used in kurtas, tops and indo-western dresses
