Within Hinduism and Buddhism in India, the Waterlily or Lotus flower bring awakening to the spiritual awakening of life and is associated with the Buddha. 

 

 

In block printing, the waterlily print would originate from Sanganeri, southern Rajasthan. The traditional version of the print would be printed onto beige fabric in browns with green leaves. Not as colourful as ours. Our versions of the print aren't traditional but it is definitely a great testament of how versatile block-printing can be!
