Description from The Campbell Collection
A small scale stripe inspired by architectural details found within the Old City in Jaipur. Block printed by hand in Sanganer, a district on the outskirts of the city, by master printer Sultan Ji and his apprentices.
In this colour-way, we’ve created our bold block printed stripe using two shades of green on mid-weight organic linen in morganite pink.
Once the fabric is pinned onto the printing table the meticulous process begins by measuring out the repeat using string pulled tight between pins. Doing so enables the artisans to print in a straight line… nobody wants squiffy stripes, especially not Sultan Ji, who has an impeccable eye for detail.
Our Old City design is made up of two wooden blocks, which have been carved by hand. Beginning at one end of the printing table, the first block is dipped into a colour and then pressed firmly into the fabric. This process is repeated over and over until they reach the other end of the printing table. Once dry enough to handle, another artisan follows behind applying the second block atop of the first.
