Bhumro Bhumro : Tale of the block printed skirt and the Kundan necklace

First of all I would like to enlighten you about My neckpiece made of “Kundan”

Kundan keshri is a traditional form of Indian gemstone jewellery involving a gem set with gold foil between the stones and its mount, usually for elaborate necklaces. The method is believed to have originated in the royal courts of Rajasthan and Gujarat. It is the oldest form of jewellery made and worn in India

My black block printed skirt explains itself but still would love to give little info about it too..

Woodblock printing on textiles is the process of printing patterns on textiles, usually of linencotton or silk, by means of incised woodenblocks. It is the earliest, simplest and slowest of all methods of textile printing. Block printing by hand is a slow process. It is, however, capable of yielding highly artistic results, some of which are unobtainable by any other method.
