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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.
