Hand-blocked textiles and papers from India - adornment for beds, tables and walls. Created through a traditional multi-step process called kalamkari, they are organic, handmade and their production provides fair-trade income to 50 families. Les Indiennes signature combination of traditional block print motifs that have been oversized and simplified mixed with bold patterns (like polka dots!) makes for a bright, eclectic modern-traditional feel.
