THE PROCESS

THE PROCESS

Block printing is a skilful craft often handed down through generations.  It is an arduous process requiring precision and patience, from the initial carving of the block to the actual printing of the individual colours of the pattern.

Our products are made by a cluster of handicraft artisans that live in a community in Jaipur, Rajasthan India.  It’s not easy work and when the weather is at its hottest in Jaipur this is when the artisans are hard at work!  It is during the dry hot weather that the hand block printing process shines at its best. The dry and hot air quickly oxidizes the primary colour and brings out the latent hues with a shining lustre.

This hard work pays off and we benefit from the beautiful timeless pieces which are ethically made that Cotton Collective are excited to offer.
