The jacket designs are inspired by the traditional Indian & Mughal motifs and patterns.

They are hand block printed for us by hereditary artisans from Jaipur, India, using traditional artisanal methods that not only achieve a high quality product but also help preserve an ancient craft that is at risk of extinction.
These artisanal methods are neither quick nor cheap. However, they are fun & wonderful for the environment. The cotton fabrics they are made from were printed by hand and 'sun cured' in the time honoured way - days under the Rajasthan desert sun rather than for a few minutes in electric devices.

ABOUT HAND BLOCK PRINTING
An ancient technique used since at least the 5th century. Intricately carved wood blocks, dipped in pigment colours are expertly pressed on the fabric. Each separate colour in the print requires its own block.

Every step of the process including hand carving the blocks, mixing pigments to achieve the desired colour & stamping the fabric requires artistry, skill and patience.

Due to the nature of hand block printing, minor variations in print & colour are inherent to the process and contribute to the beauty & uniqueness of the print. Indeed no two pieces are exactly alike. Unlike with machine made products these are not considered defects.

CARE:
- Machine wash with cool water eg 30 on gentle cycle.
- Use gentle detergents.
- Air dry or tumble dry at low temperature.
- Iron if needed at moderate temperature.
- Pigments bleed a little as compared to chemical dyes. It is recommended to wash separately the 1st time
