• Why I love block printing…

    Indian block printing is an ancient art and a traditional technique done by hand. It is one of India’s foremost crafts. Block prints are done by eye, and telltale signs of the human hand, even imperfections, are part of the ineffable humanity and beauty of the craft. Using a carved woodblock, natural dyes and traditional patterns, the artisans …

  • Summer Happenings

    This summer there’s lots of new kaftans and summer beach bound goodies. I found some amazing fabrics last time I was in India from this weaver’s group called Women Weaves based out of Maheshwar. Truly amazing organisation and a labour of love for textiles. Started by a royal (yes that’s correct) American and Indian couple …

    We have a few new shapes this summer from a new printing company. It’s a young brother- sister team that are fresh in the business. I visited them on my last trip to India and we pulled together some lovely prints with easy to wear cuts. All the prints are hand done, it’s a pretty …

  • Morocco on the Mind!

    Though I froze a little with the oddly cold temperatures, it was nice to get back to Marrakesh and see how things have changed. Wow is it more a destination place verses a town! New restaurants, new shops (with new price points!) and few things to find- though I will admit this required more searching …

  • Detox Days

      Sitting at my cottage just north of Helsinki, it’s really quiet. Even though Helsinki isn’t a large city, there is still a certain level of constant noise which dissipates pretty quickly as you move away from town.
