An immersive, interactive workshop at a block printing studio brings you in touch with artisans who can nurture your understanding of a printing technique that is a part of India’s contemporary textile culture.
An intriguing stopover is the workshop where paper is made from elephant poo. Enjoy watching this incredible process! In contrast to this, you get to engage with the founder of a zero-waste label.
