CA - 14 - Quiet elegance. This scarf has a masculine gravity, allover Leheriya zigzags enclosed within a beautiful traditional border block. A subtle touch of madder red hides in the border. Don’t miss the feeding parakeets in the border! And the printer’s name stamp near the hem.
A very special series of museum-quality traditional blockprinted cotton dupatta shawls
Hand block printed by dedicated traditional block printers near Jaipur.
Amazingly, one can still find artisans who ply their hereditary traditional textile craft with labour intensive botanical source dyes, and absolutely traditional block designs.
A block design can be re-issued from a family heirloom design, I have met printers who re-carve designs from their Grandfather’s workshop archive. These precious new scarves were purchased directly from a traditional printer’s family. Hats off, for their dedication to the complex multiple-stage craft of developing botanic source dyes.
