This light indigo and dabu (mud resist) scarf is here for summer. Inspired by the after school cricket games in the Bagru drying fields, Block Shop's bat and ball motif is an ode to Indian summer.
Block Shop is a textile company that marries the traditional Indian hand block printing process with a modern California aesthetic. Their products are a collaboration between sisters Hopie and Lily Stockman in Los Angeles and a family of printers and dyers in Rajasthan. Their entire process is manual: they design on paper, print with wooden blocks, and dye in small batches – the same way it’s been done in India for more than three centuries. No two textiles are exactly alike.
