Our 100% cotton fabric is hand-block printed by a team just outside Jaipur. The wooden block design is carved by hand, taking up to a month to complete, then the colour is added and printed by hand, often layering up to 4 colours to one design. The printing house employs unskilled young men, provides them with accomodation and training to become skilled craftsmen in this heritage Rajasthani textile design. They are then lovingly filled with natural cotton filler and hand embroidered using a traditional Kantha stitch. A labour of love that we hope shines through in these very special, heirloom quilts.
