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.


Hand-printed in India. 100% cotton. 20"W x 30"L.

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.
