Hand block printing in Bagru village, Jaipur, India. 

 

Welcome to the artistry of block prints! We use both Bagru block prints and contemporary block prints on organic cotton.  Block printing is a traditional heritage craft in the Jaipur region of North India.  It uses carved wood blocks to stamp out each colour of the pattern repeatedly across the surface of the fabric.  It is a time intensive process which requires skill and artistry.  Slight variations in colour and density of the print are a natural part of the intrinsic beauty of this handwork and are considered part of the beauty of hand block prints.  

All items in this collection are hand block printed in Bagru or Sanganer, Jaipur, India.

Produced in-house with fair trade, artisan manufacture.












Fit/Sizing/Care

Fit

Our styles are meant to give room to breath and move.  We use fine tailoring coupled with a relaxed, comfortable fit.

We use a fit guide for each of our styles to provide more information about the fit that was intended.

Slim Fit: a close fit to the body. Regular Fit: a comfortable, relaxed fit with room around the body. Generous Fit: a very loose fit (such as in our oversized blouses) with lots of room around the body for ease of movement.

Wash Care

We recommend cold water machine wash with a bio detergent and either tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade for all of our 100% cotton garments.  Cold water wash and low heat drying or line drying in the shade will increase the life of the garment, prolong the vibrancy of the colors and reduce energy use. Shrinkage on all cottons is minimal, approximately 3%.

 

For our silk and cotton silk garments, we also recommend gentle cycle machine wash cold water or delicate hand washing to increase the life of the garment and reduce the environmental footprint from energy use, detergents and water wastage.

 

All garments have been washed several times during the printing/dyeing and manufacturing process.
