We love this way of decorating fabric as it gives the design a hand made look, every piece is slightly different and we love the mark making and variations in colour which make block printing so unique.
We met up with a couple of printers we had met earlier at a trade show and just like that, we designed our blocks and had them carved exclusively for us. This was like a dream come true, seeing something we had created come to life in a country we had both wanted to do production in for a long time.
The printers not only printed the fabric for all of the beautiful things we had made, cushions, dressing gowns, tablecloths etc., but the fabric was sent to a local lampshade maker who made our beautiful pleated lampshades.
It also went to the lovely Ajay, who created our beautiful new notebooks and decorative boxes. Ajay showed us how the paper for our notebooks was made and then covered some of them with our block prints.
There are hundreds of traditional designs which have been produced for centuries in a myriad of wonderful colour combinations. But of course, we wanted to do things differently! We decided to stick to a colour palette of coastal blues, turquoises, aqua and duck egg blue.
This means that the colours all work together and so you can create a layered interior scheme knowing that you can’t go wrong. Usually this takes hours of work, finding fabrics which work together is an arduous process, but we’ve made it easy for you!
We also had some plain cushions and throws woven, which co-ordinate beautifully with our other collections, from this block printed range through to Beachcomber, Reef and our classic collection.
