Block printing represents a craft that provides a sustainable livelihood to rural artisans in the world.  It reflects human labor and sensibilities of the craftsman, which no machine made fabric can ever do.

Popular boutiques like West Elm, Anthropologie, Serena & Lily, Roberta Roller Rabbit, and Pottery Barn are all offering products that use this meticulous process which involves the application of raw mixed paints on fabric using handmade irons or woodblocks.

You can merge this age old Indian tradition with your modern home d├ęcor or personal fashion style to get a fresh look with a ethnic twist!

My Mela is an amazing resource that carries authentic, handcrafted products designed and made by Indian Artisans.  MyMela's products are only carried on this site and are priced very reasonably because there is no middleman between the artist and the consumer.

Here are some of their block print offerings:
