Named after the traditional Mughal wine chalice, shades of velvety mulberry and red wine pair with ash to create a vibrant expression of hope and celebration. Lightweight enough for spring and summer, but with enough heft to keep you warm in the cooler months. We only use non-toxic, AZO-free dyes.
technique: Hand Block-Printing
This scarf was made using a traditional block-printing process. Wooden blocks are carefully prepared by master carvers which are then dipped in dye and stamped onto the fabric. Each color/pattern combination requires a block and each scarf may need several block-prints to achieve the final design. Every step of the process from the design sketch, to the carving of the wooden blocks, to dye-mixing, to block-printing, to washing & drying, has been done entirely by hand, respecting a tradition that dates back thousands of years.
Each scarf is unique and slight variations in color and print reflect the nature of hand block-printing.
