Details

At once bold and modern, as well as classic, the original design of this shawl is by Rajnandinee and Srabonti in India. The alabaster-hued tussar silk wrap is decorated with block printing techniques executed by hand that reveal black leafy shields among bands of magenta and rusty orange.

Hand block printing is a millenary art form believed to have spread throughout Asia during the 4th century AD. The desired composition is carved on wooden block with a chisel, hammer, file, nails etc. Printing involves laying out the fabric on flat tables and making the impressions with the previously carved blocks dipped in the desired dyes.

"So pretty"

I love this dress. It s very light weight and the design is beautiful. I am 5 8” and wear between a 10-12. It s a little tight in the bust, but fits perfectly everywhere else. It s a definite keeper.

"Child size . . ."

Love the fabric designs . . . disappointed only because they are very small and do not cover well - and I do have a small face. Best for a smaller face like a childs.
