For thousands of years, craftsmen of India have been making decorative block-printed cottons. Skilled craftsmen stamp the cloth using intricate carved wooden blocks to imprint the designs onto the fabric. Depending on the number of colours and the intricacy of the designs the printer hand stamps the cloth hundreds of times to complete the pattern, using up to seven different colours.
The art of block-printing is passed down from generation to generation and to achieve the highest quality we are working with some of the best block-printers in India.
We love the charm and vividness of these traditional prints and hope that they will bring joy to your shop or home.
Our linen is made from 100% cotton. For the napkins we have chosen a fine cambric cloth which feels lovely to use. For the tablecloths and runners we have used a heavier weave. All corners are mitred to give a neat, quality finish.
Please remember that given the number of times each piece must be stamped and the pinpoint accuracy needed to do so, no two pieces are exactly alike. The mark of the artisan is left in the subtle variations from piece to piece, which is one of the most endearing qualities of block print fabric. Therefore no piece is identical. Small spots and imperfections can occur from the printing process. These are not faults, but reminders of the fact that it is made by hand, and are to be expected.
