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.
