WHAT MAKES ME SPECIAL?

Block printed by hand in Jaipur, then hand stitched by equally skilled artisans the bed cover 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 bedspread to be cut and stitched. The women artisans then take the printed bed covering 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.
