Anokhi was founded in 1970 by a British/Indian couple Faith and J.P. ‘John’ Singh, in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. It began mainly as an export company, primarily to the UK, specializing in garments and textiles made by local craftspeople, using traditional printing techniques with hand-carved wooden blocks and vegetable dyes. As well as reviving Rajasthan’s hand printing tradition, they also use appliqué, embroidery, patchwork and bead work in their designs. In this way they provide a livelihood for local artisans, while ensuring these skills survive. The Anokhi Hand Printing Museum was founded in 2002, dedicated to the art of block printing.
