Block printed by hand in Jaipur, then Kantha stitched by equally skilled artisans the bed cover is created from hours of dedicated crafting. Before the printing can begin, another artisan carves 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 20 ft 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 create the bedspread. They hand stitch the lines of white stitching through the three cotton layers, using the age-old Kantha stitching technique to create the Kantha quilted stitch look for the bedspreads. Each one is its own individual work of art, celebrating rich artisanal traditions and bringing you a little bit of eastern handicraft with the modern monochrome look.
