    Whispering silks – mulberry stoles: hibiscus indigo

    Block printed silks from the sands of Rajasthan. Made by dying with blocks, by traditional block printers. The art of making natural dyes is one of the oldest known arts. Vegetable dyes have developed into a skilled art form in India, used for colouring fabric from ancient times. The blocks are hand-carved, made by skilled artisans who have learnt their craft over the years, from generation to generation. Good quality teakwood is used to make these blocks, ranging from a couple of inches to a foot in size. Printing uses several stamps with blocks of colour, then drying, then re-stamping with a different colour. A single piece or stole can take 3 days to make. Colours are got from local material - henna gives green, rhubarb gives brown, alizarin gives red etc. These are all made using natural dyes. They make beautiful gifts - each piece is exclusively handmade and sun dried. Variations in tone, designs and colour add to their uniqueness. No two pieces are exactly alike, despite having the same design and colour. Dry clean only. The borders and flowers of this indigo stole are touched with subtle gold. Size L 213,4cm x W 55,8cm.

    Indigo stoles: cotton fables.

    Done in Rajasthan, indigo dyeing is a well preserved tradition in India. Cotton needs a variety of treatments before it absorbs any dye except indigo. This natural dye produces beautiful effects with no environmental pollution. India is known for this ancient practice of natural dyeing. Dyeing is done by extracting the colour from the vegetable dye, then preparing the fabric to be dyed so it absorbs the dye well. The fabric has to be heated for about 30-45 minutes for the dye to take on a long lasting effect. Indigo cotton stoles are light, no-fuss, and can be worn every day, teamed with a white shirt and blue jeans. These are hand-made, and each stole has variations in colour/tone, because of the sun drying process. Tones vary according to their exposure, resulting in unique pieces - no two pieces are exactly alike. Size L 177,8cm x W 45,7cm.

    Indigo rugs: moonstruck.

    Indigo is a dyestuff originally extracted from the varieties of the indigo and woad plants. Indigo was known throughout the ancient world for its ability to colour fabrics a deep blue, and India was one of the main centres of its production. The brilliant and attractive blue hue is still in demand today. The dying process of indigo is a long one. This water insoluble blue dye is extracted through a fermentation process. Then it undergoes oxidation, and after a series of processes, indigo as we know it emerges. In the dying process, cotton and linen threads are usually soaked and dried 15-20 times. By comparison, silk threads must be dyed over 40 times. After dying, the yarn is usually sun dried to deepen the colour. Block printing produces an interesting combination of designs with indigo. These rugs are made the traditional way, by artisans in villages around Rajasthan. Because it is a desert state, Rajasthan has traditionally been good with craft and architecture. Its ancient forts, culture and hospitality are legendary. Artisans are usually male, practicing craft handed down over generations. Crafts such as painting, carving and dyeing are very much alive here. Size L 182,88cm x W 91,44cm.
