So we've been slowly receiving shipments of items handpicked and designed by CaraMiya and Daniel while they were in India this summer. While I might miss the suspense and drama of receiving a 40 foot container all at once, it's so nice to give each new arrival the attention and appreciation it's due...and spread out the impact on my bank account.
It's kindof like Christmas once a month instead of just once a year.
Our latest shipment is all hand block printed cottons--one of my favorite things in the world. The patterns on all of these cottons are made by soaking a carved wooden block in dye then pressing or printing the pattern onto the cotton. Print, repeat. Print, repeat. Print, repeat. You get the idea. If not, here's a picture!
Daniel brought back some of the blocks used for printing too...
One of my most treasured items from Indigo is my blockprinted cotton quilt I took home a few years ago. I stopped using a top sheet because the cotton is so soft and nice. The new colors are stunning so I might just end up with a new treasure..
Each of these beauties is reversible and in the above photo you'll see each side next to its opposite. The quilts come in queen/king, twin, and baby sizes. There's matching standard, euro, and throw pillow covers too.
Of course there are coordinating curtains... Lots of different colors and patterns in different lengths/sizes. Lots of easy ways to update your home with colorful patterns in the great cottons.
I love the use of all the blockprints in these bedrooms from ELLE DECOR
Look at the gorgeous shisha fabric used as a window treatment! (We have beautiful pieces of that work as well) Layering the blue blockprints is a fun way to mix all the patterns and still feel cohesive.
The mix of patterns is really playful and fun. With our reversible quilts, it's easy to mix it up without trying too hard.
I loved this room because it looks like it belongs on Maui. We carry the simple cotton blockprints in many different sizes and colors. (They're perfect for the beach too).
There are many more block printed goodies, but I'll leave something to look forward to...
More to come!
