One of the oldest forms of textile design going back thousands of years to the Indus Valley civilisation, hand-block printing is found throughout India and renowned in Jaipur, Rajasthan. First, a motif is carved into a hardwood such as sheesham (Indian Rosewood) to create a design in relief. The woodblock is dipped in dye and stamped by hand onto fabric. Each colour within a design or motif represents a separate woodblock and reveals the printer’s skill, practised eye and a steady hand. Woodblocks are themselves often works of art and a testimony to the skill of the carver.

As all our fabrics are made using traditional print-making techniques there can be subtle variations in colours and patterns. Imperfections are normal and are a reminder that the fabrics are made entirely by hand.
