THE ARTISANS,

Hand block printing India

Traditional Rajasthani block printing on textiles.

Woodblock printing techniques were long established in China before becoming popular in many states of India, most famously the state of Rajasthan in around the 12th century.

The beautiful and intricate designs have become popular across the globe. The nature of hand block print means that imperfections sometimes occur which adds a unique feel to the printed textiles we use.

We spend a month or so every year with talented artisans in Rajasthan working on colours and block print patterns using natural dyes. Take a look at our range of handwoven and block printed clothing.
