The Mughal Empire dominated the Indian subcontinent in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The shahs spared no luxury, even when the court was on the move during a military campaign or hunting expedition. Printed cottons such as these would have made tent “walls” in the northern Indian desert. The print in these cotton Indian pillowcases, inspired by the intricate metalwork settings of Mughal jewelry, requires as many as 12 separate blocks to achieve the layers of color and pattern.


Hand-block-printed in Rajasthan, India. 100% cotton. Standard pillowcases.


Machine wash cold.

Hand-block-printing is a tradition that dates back more than five centuries in the northern Indian village of Sanganer, Jaipur. Techniques are handed down from generation to generation, and the process remains decidedly low-tech. Hand-carved teakwood blocks are dipped in natural indigo and gray dyes, then stamped onto lengths of crisp cotton with studied movements. The result is a bold pattern whose irregularities are testament to the hours of handmade artisan involved.

Archeological evidence suggests that block printing has been practiced in India since the 5th century BC. Also known as relief printing—when it’s done on paper, the ink leaves behind a barely visible raised texture—block printing produces a distinctive line, especially when printed in high-contrast black and white. Hand-pieced and hand-printed, this elegant jacket pairs sections of classic block-printed patterns with swaths of solid black, resulting in a stylish and easy-to-wear celebration of an ancient art form.

This inviting bedding begins as lengths of crisp cotton fabric, laid smooth along a wooden table. Artisans take hand-carved wooden blocks, dip them in indigo-hued dye, and stamp the elaborate pattern one block at a time. It takes up to nine separate blocks to create the multi-layered design. Many of the artisans who work on these pieces own family farms and return to their village during planting and harvest seasons.

Talavera pottery originated in the Arab-Andalusia culture of Talavera de la Reina, Spain, where it was known as majolica. When Spanish monks came to Mexico in the 16th century, they wanted to decorate their monasteries and churches with tiles like they had back home. But although pre-Hispanic Mexican cultures had a long history of working in ceramic, they didn’t use a potter’s wheel or glaze. The monks brought specialized artisans to the Mexican state of Puebla to train them in the majolica style. Mexican artisans fused their knowledge of ceramic techniques and local materials with their own interpretation of majolica, creating the distinctive patterns and colors that have come to be known as talavera pottery.
