Calico textile printing

Calico involves a process of printing design onto cloth by impressing four or five colours onto it. The initial colour to be applied is black, and all of them are applied using hand-carved wooden molds. Below is a documentary of this process, for which the Iranian city of Isfahan is famous for. The video is in Farsi.
