Our take on the timeless polka dot - charcoal hand-printed dots and strips laid on lusciously soft and gauzy natural cotton. Wear it all year around for comfort.
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. The scarf is made in small batches in a women-owned factory.
