Hand Block Prints
Printed by people, not machines, without the use of electricity! See how they're made in A Look at Hand Block Printing.
Our block print fabrics are printed by hand in Rajasthan, India, by multi-generation family businesses. They're on cotton cambric, a machine-woven fabric similar to English lawn which is very comfortable to wear. It's a little heavier than batiste, but lighter and softer than quilting cotton. In other words, it's perfect for sewing clothes!
The indigo-dyed prints are on organic cotton cambric. They were minimally processed to conserve water, a precious resource in the area where these fabrics are made. Any residual odor left by the traditional printing and dyeing techniques will wash away. Please wash before using, separate from other fabrics, and rinse well to remove excess indigo.
Mix and match prints or use for contrasting bindings or facings. Light colors may need to be lined for skirts or dresses. Need smaller quantities? Shop fat quarters.
