A medium weight hand block printed square shawl, printed with natural dyes of Himalayan Rhubarb and Fermented Iron in gold and black.
A summery hand drawn floral design with a butterfly motif and an eye-catching geometric border. Hand block printed, the floral pattern is hand drawn by our founder, Sarah, which was combined with Master Block Printer Sufiyan Khatri's minimalist geometric border pattern.
Wear it in multiple ways: as a shawl, as a head wrap or as a cute beach top! The sky's the limit!
Much of our inspiration comes from the natural world, and photos from our travels.
'As I dug through our old photos looking for things that caught my eye - I spotted an image of a shiny green vine with bright open faced blooms of yellow, and a second image of a butterfly alighting on a hibiscus. I took some time to find out what the blooms were, and what type of butterfly. Both were taken in Assam at my husband's home'.
'I had not planned on creating a block print design. But, on a whim, inspired by those two photos, I found myself sketching out a vine pattern, figuring out how to make it into a repeating pattern, and adding a lemon pansy butterfly motif. We had visited Ajrakhpur in 2018, a village where traditional Ajrakh block printing is practiced, and I had hoped to work together in the future - we initiated the collaboration in June 2021, which resulted in the block printed fabric and shawls included in our debut collection.'
