Block printing is a traditional art form native to Rajasthan, India. Artisans hand carve a wood block with patterns inspired by local flora and fauna, dip it into dye, and then carefully stamp the fabric, creating beautiful patterns. We have improved the process for our block print artisans by reducing water use, using unbleached cotton, and natural and non-toxic dyes.
Our 100% recycled cotton paper is made by artisans in Rajasthan, India, following a generations-old process. First, discarded cotton scraps are collected from the textile industry. Cotton is broken down into fibers using a traditional wheel press and then soaked overnight. Next, the pulp is strained, pressed into pages and hung to dry. After ironing, crisp pear goes either into journals or into the hands of artisans for screen-printing, embroidery or patchwork. The entire process is tree-free, non-toxic, and conserves and filters water for reuse in irrigation.
Block Print Artisans
Our block print artisan partners live in scattered rural villages that are challenged by poverty and lack of infrastructure in their isolated communities. There are few opportunities for jobs in this desert region, where the climate is too dry for agriculture. Most artisans live in mud huts and some do not have electricity. We partner with an organization that focuses on economic, social and environmental upliftment for these communities and provides development solutions such solar power, education, and health care.
Paper Making Artisans
Our partner artisans belong to a minority group called Kagzis, who are part of a long tradition of handmade paper-making artisans. Since the process is done by hand, it provides work opportunity for many people in this community. Benefits for the artisans include training, microfinance, education, and health assistance.
