Inspired by Bombay’s leafy boulevards, hand block printed leafy motifs come together to form a chevron pattern in this Kantha stitched to hold together a duo fabric ( lightweight cotton canvas and handloom) thrown. The canvas while soft has a gentle texture whilst the plain handloom side is smooth to the touch. Both sides of the throw is framed by long fringes which have been hand pulled and tied after the process of printing embellishing the threads of the fringe with a speckled pattern in plum on oatmeal making it luxurious yet remaining organic in its simplicity of the process and use of two textiles. Due to the hand stitching irregular stitches and tiny knots are inherent to the finish.
*CRAFT : Woodblock printing on textiles is the process of printing patterns on textiles, usually of linen, cotton or silk, by means of incised wooden blocks. It is the earliest method of textile printing. Block printing by hand is a slow and skilful process.
