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.
