At PAPAGAI, we specialize in block printing, a traditional printing technique that involves carving a design onto a wooden block, which is then used to stamp the design onto fabric or paper. The process of block printing is entirely done by hand, from carving the block to stamping the design onto the fabric.
Our screen-printed products are also made using traditional techniques and are done manually by hand. We work with skilled artisans who use mesh screens to transfer the design onto the fabric, one color at a time. The process requires a steady hand and a keen eye for detail, resulting in beautifully crafted products that showcase the artistry and skill of our artisans.
With PAPAGAI, you can be assured that each piece is made with care and dedication, preserving the time-honored traditions of block and screen printing in India. We ensure that you receive a high-quality product that is both beautiful and meaningful.
PAPAGAI was born from the passion of two brothers who share a deep love for the cultural traditions of India. Although born and raised in Poland, our roots are firmly planted in the Indian subcontinent. Our family has been in the textile industry for over 25+ years, and through our experiences, we developed an eye for the best and most unique fabrics.
It was during one of our visits to India that we were introduced to the traditional process of block and screen printing. We were immediately drawn to the beauty and intricate details of these handmade products, and it sparked a new sense of inspiration within us. We saw an opportunity to create a brand that not only provided high-quality textiles but also supported local artisans and their craft.
With this inspiration, we launched PAPAGAI, a brand that showcases the beauty and diversity of Indian textiles while honoring the traditions and skills of local artisans. Our journey has been fueled by a passion for preserving the rich cultural heritage of India and sharing it with the world. With each collection, we aim to offer a unique blend of traditional and modern designs, showcasing the beauty and versatility of block and screen printing techniques. We are proud to support the livelihoods of local artisans, providing them with a platform to showcase their skills and talents to the world.
