ancient hand-made textile techniques

blockprint, shibori, ikat: craft techniques that require extraordinary skill and patience are one of our biggest passions. we travel across India to find these masterful artisans so we can bring the best quality fabrics to you.


ikat is a dyeing craft used to create a distinct style of textile patterns. ikat is done by resist dyeing sections of the yarns prior to weaving the fabric. it's a slow, handmade process and it takes approximately 40 to 60 days to produce enough fabric for 30 pieces.

block printing is the manual technique of printing textile fabrics using engraved wooden blocks. It's the earliest and slowest of all methods of textile printing. most of our shirts and jacket's linings are made with this technique and we're obsessed with the result.

shibori is a Japanese manual resist dyeing technique with over 1.300 years. in Shibori dyeing, the patterning comes from the way that the craftsman bind, fold, twist, or clamp the fabric before immersing it into a dye bath.
