Blue printing in Lower Saxony.

Blue printing is a technique for dyeing linen and cotton textiles that is used to create decorative white patterns on a blue background. The process uses wooden blocks to print patterns onto white fabrics. There are only nine blue printing workshops in the whole of Germany, two of which are situated in the towns of Jever and Einbeck in Lower Saxony. Here, the blue printing is carried out by hand in the same way as it was done 375 years ago. Visitors can see this traditional craft being performed live on a guided tour – and stock up on new tablecloths or fabrics at the same time.
