The Strážnice Indigo Print - in South Moravia a team of skilled craftsmen maintain a traditional indigo print workshop. This is one of the last two places in the Czech Republic where indigo printing takes place.The fifth generation of the Strážnice indigo printers adheres to the traditional procedure for indigo block printing: linen or cotton cloth is dyed using indigo and the patterns are printed by hand using original woodblocks.
