Block Shop - hand printed scarves
I found out a nice blog run by an American living in Cape Town. She posted a link to these scarves and I find them beautiful. The brand is Block Shop which is an Indian textile company founded by sisters Lily and Hopie Stockman. They work with the Chhipa family of master printers based in Bagru, India, who have been hand block printing with natural dyes for over 350 years.Their textiles are printed one at a time with hand-carved wooden blocks and non-toxic natural dyes on the finest Indian silk-cotton blend.
How beautiful are they? http://www.blockshoptextiles.com/pages/about
