    Every textile tells its own story, which is what makes our hand block printed throw pillows so special.


    Block printed textiles are a centuries-old art form, traditionally crafted in Indian villages. Skilled artisans begin the process by carving intricate designs onto wooden blocks, which are then stamped onto hand woven fabric using special dyes. The dyes are also mixed by hand to match specific color tones, resulting in pieces that will vary slightly from one another. Each color in a textile requires its own individual wood block.

    This labor-intensive process is what makes block printed textiles so special — no two pieces are the same.

    Each design has its own unique look and feel which cannot be replicated by machine. Block printing is truly an art form that celebrates the skill of the artisan and creates one-of-a-kind pieces of beauty that will last for generations to come.
