Details

Each taught by her own mother, Rajnandinee and Srabonti combine their talents in the design of this elegant shawl. Woven of silk, the ecru wrap reveals myriad ebony leaves framed by abstract patterns in a composition expertly achieved through hand block printing techniques in India.

Hand block printing is a millenary art form believed to have spread throughout Asia during the 4th century AD. The desired composition is carved on wooden block with a chisel, hammer, file, nails etc. Printing involves laying out the fabric on flat tables and making the impressions with the previously carved blocks dipped in the desired dyes.

"Not to the standard of these artists"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered this shawl after having been delighted by several works by the same artists. Regretfully, this scarf is a disappointment: it is not actually woven as a shawl but is rather cut from a fabric roll and hemmed along both long sides. This was supposed to be a gift, but it is not presentable.

"Amazing necklace!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This beautiful necklace was shipped quickly, and even contained a handwritten note! Upon opening the package, the beautiful craftsmanship and materials were very impressive! Each time I have worn this necklace, I have received multiple compliments. I love wearing it knowing the care which was put into making it. Such a good value for something that I will wear for years. I am very appreciative of the women who made this necklace! Thank you!
