Block shop textiles

I am a sucker for any traditional hand printing method and block printing is one of my favourites! The simplicity of it means you don't need lots of expensive equipment. The unevenness and unpredictability of each print is what makes it so fun. 

Block shop is and Indian textile company founded by sisters Lily and Hopie Stockman. Their scarves are printed by hand, one at a time, using non- toxic vegetable dyes.
They work with the Chhipa family of master printers, who have been using this method of printing with natural dyes for over 350 years!

Block printing is something that we could all do, and get really lovely results.
