Block Shop

Sisters Lily and Hopie Stockman run Block Shop – an Indian textile company who work directly with a co-op of master printers in Bagru, India. Printed one at a time with hand-carved wood blocks, Block Shop‘s gorgeous unique scarf patterns are all printed with vivid eco-friendly dyes. Tumeric, pomegranate and dried onion skins are some of the natural organic materials used to create their distinctive colour palette.

The proceeds of every hand made scarf that is sold supports the Bagru community of artists but also Block Shop donates money towards long term healthcare initiatives for the families who create the beautiful scarves.

I’m all for hand made products especially when they have a worthy cause. Check out their collection here and the print process here.
