Mumbai Block Print - Cotton Shawl - Petite Paisley


Hand block printed by artisans in Mumbai, this stunning one of a kind cotton shawl has an incredible vibrancy and life. The tradition of block printing with natural dyes meets contemporary design. 

Over the centuries, communities of block printers have often migrated. When they do, their designs and ways of working change and evolve. This is certainly true of the Mumbai block printers. Originally dyers from Kachchh, Gujarat, Ahmed Khatri and his son Sarfraz Khatri have taken the art of hand block printing in a completely new direction. Still working with natural dyes and traditional processes, they only work in contemporary designs they themselves create. They have designed an astonishing array of special hand carved blocks to create both motifs and unusual distressed effects.
