While the prints are drying in the sun this little chap came along to keep an eye on things, to make sure we’re doing things right.
We do our block printing outside in the mornings before it gets too hot at this time of year. A couple of birds made a nest just a few feet away from our printing table. We’re happy to report that the little ones successfully fledged and have left the nest. It was nice to have them around.
This guy in the picture is perched on one of our table runners made from hand-spun, hand-woven organically produced cotton which we block print. A wide range is available in our online shop at kurma.co.in/product-category/dining. We also do a range of matching placemats.
If you’d ever like to come and visit us at our studio to see how and where we create our products you’d be more than welcome – and we can even stretch to a cup of tea. As we are not always there then please call us in advance to arrange a convenient time.
We are based in a village called Jakhan just off the Rajpur Road between Dehradun and Rajpur. Here’s a map:
We have added a couple of new pages to the site recently.
For those interested in wholesale quantities of our range or customised products we have added a new page which gives details and some case studies of work we have done for other clients.
We have also added a Gallery page where we’ll continue to post pictures of our products and the people we work with. So check in regularly to see what’s new.
Following on from the last post here is some more block printed tableware.
Here are few pictures of some table mats, table runners and tea towels that we have been printing in the last few days. The fabric is pure organic cotton which is hand-spun and hand-woven. The designs are ours and are block printed by hand.
Here are some photos from a recent trip to a cotton spinning and weaving colony here in Dehradun where we source some of our fabrics. The cotton is organically farmed and as you can see is hand spun and woven. The weaving organisation adheres to fair trade practises.
The finished products are simply beautiful.
