    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.

    Kantha stoles silk: patchwork stories.

    Kantha originated in east India, in the states of Bengal, Bihar, and Orissa. Kantha is a simple running stitch, sewn by hand over the entire length of fabric. Rural women from economically weaker sections would stitch up old sarees to make quilts which they could use in winters. Over time, the kantha has gained a loyal following, and has evolved to include highly sophisticated designs and motifs. The density and the direction of the running stitches over layers of soft fabrics give it a toned, rippled effect. Now kantha includes entire sarees, stoles, shawls and even bedspreads. The designs include geometrical, human and floral motifs. Our stoles are composed of patches from many different fabrics, and then sewn over with kantha by hand. Both the technique (running stich) and the product are referred to as kantha. The different patches appear to give the stole a variegated look. These are reversible, two sided. They can be worn on either side. The lower side has mostly plain fabric, while the upper side is full of colour and vibrancy. Dry clean or hand wash only. Size L 203,2cm x W 45,7cm.

    Colours of the desert bandhani stole: warm sands.

    Made in the desert state of Gujarat. Hand knotted silk stoles. each knot is made by tying the fabric with string, dipping in colour, then drying out. sometimes three-four colours are used. Women tie knots while gossiping in groups, adding their secrets to these lovely stoles. The knots are later untangled to reveal the area that is not dyed. Beautiful and intricate geometric patterns emerge when the knots are untied. The whole family is involved in making this garment, with the men dying fabric and women stringing the knots. Some women can tie up to 700 knots in a day, while a metre of fabric can have thousands of tiny knots. Because each knot retains its shape, a magical texture of ups and downs makes the stole a very layered garment. Beautiful to pair with any outfit to make it smart and dressy. Note: these are stretchable - because of the tie and dye process, the fabric becomes compressed, and can be smoothed out to make it bigger. However, it is better to leave it as is, and we do not recommend ironing. Dry clean or hand wash only.

    Desert throw.

    Handwoven cotton throw made in the Indian desert, embroidered in a technique known as Kashia. While Kashia is also a name used for embroidery in Kashmir, the one used here is typical of designs seen in this part of the desert. This Kashia uses an extra weft, allowing for the distinctive horizontal bands of bold colour running across the fabric in handlooms. Many of these designs are based on a 'master' design, used in a variety of colours and combinations. Motifs such as kites, fish, human and geometric figures are common. Kashia work is made using a special technique on a traditional pit loom. It is a laborious and time consuming process, done almost exclusively by men. Men from the desert villages of Rajasthan are trained in this art. Can be bought as a set of two. This can also be used as a cushion cover, if you have a filler of size 28 x 28''. Size L 73,6cm x W 73,6cm.
