Description

Accented with a contemporary hand block print, using water-based ink, this organic cotton towel adds a simple luxury to your kitchen. Highly absorbent and reusable, this product is a practical way to reduce consumption of disposable paper towels. Packaged with a belly band and a hanger, it makes an excellent host or hostess gift.

A Fair Trade product. Handmade by artisans in India.

How It's Made

Artisans apply block print patterns to organic cotton. To start printing, an artisan evenly applies dye to a hand-carved wooden block. The fabric is then hand-stamped firmly and steadily, leaving a printed pattern. Dye is frequently added to maintain the same intensity of color. Once the printing is finished with a specific color and block, the artisan cleans the block and often must wait for the cloth to dry before continuing.

This is a deceptively simple art - each piece features dozens, if not hundreds, of careful impressions. This artisan group, based in Northern India, trains and employs physically challenged women and men, who have limited employment opportunities as a result of their physical challenges and the social stigma associated with it.
