With a vintage feel, the print design is a patchwork of cleverly joined hand block prints, imperceptible but there as a demonstration of its authentic craft.

Block printed by hand in Jaipur, then hand stitched by equally skilled artisans the Aaliyah cushion is created from hours of dedicated crafting. Before the printing can begin, another artisan needs to hand carve the print design on a small block of soft wood, to bring the sketched drawing to life. The printer then uses that one small wooden block to dip in the dye and print carefully along a 20ft table. He joins the designs quickly and skillfully to produce the beautifully printed sheeting for the cushion to be cut and stitched. The women artisans then take the printed fabric and using the age-old Kantha stitching technique, hand stitch it together with a plain layer of cotton, to create the Kantha quilted stitch look for the bedspreads. Each one is its own work of art, celebrating these rich artisan traditions and bringing you a little bit of eastern design at home.
