Yards of light cotton stretch across a long wooden table in a textile workshop in Rajasthan. With sharp raps, an artisan moves along the table, stamping inked carved wooden blocks on the fabric. Centuries-old Indian textile traditions involve embellishing fabrics with hand block-printing. Here, this block printing adorns a breezy cotton travel skirt that looks great even after the most taxing journey. Roll and twist it in a ball when packing, and it comes out with the irregular folds that give the skirt its shape. Elastic waist.
