The Textile Research Centre in Leiden, The Netherlands, houses a remarkable set of a printing block and two related embroidery pieces. The printing block and one of the pieces, a sari band, originate from India and they date to the early 21st century. The other sample, or test piece, illustrated here, was worked with the help of the printing block.
