Making Hand Block Printed, Hand Appliquéd (Rabari)
Block printing in India dates back to the 19th century. The teak blocks used to print exotic finery for the Siamese royalty, have now become a rarity. Efforts are being made to revive these art forms, lost in the sands of time.
This stunning wrap exudes a rare beauty. Natural colors are mixed together to create a rich array of dyes. A deftly carved wedge of wood has been used to stamp intricate patterns on fabric. Later, the fabric is washed and sun-dried. The telltale signs of the human hand, add to the charm. The wool motifs replicate the printed pattern. This is a must-have piece to enliven your wardrobe.

I placed an order recently and received as a bonus, a small bag with bells and incense in it. It smells lovely.
Hi, I am wondering how I can find your face-wraps. I see your beautiful scarves, but can’t find your face-wrap that you advertised.
THANK YOU so much and I am so glad I found your website. Beautiful products!
