We're delighted and proud to be a member of the Heritage Crafts Association - HCA.
The HCA is the advocacy body for traditional heritage crafts. Working in partnership with Government and key agencies, it provides a focus for craftspeople, groups, societies and guilds, as well as individuals who care about the loss of traditional crafts skills, and works towards a healthy and sustainable framework for the future.
Block-printing is currently on the red list of endangered craft.
Crafts classified as ‘endangered’ are those which currently have sufficient craftspeople to transmit the craft skills to the next generation, but for which there are serious concerns about their ongoing viability.
You can read more about the HCA and how they're working towards safeguarding craft skills and knowledge.
India - A Journey of Discovery
We're very excited to be returning to Jaipur later in the year.
We'll be travelling back to a remote and beautiful part of Bagru to block print using a traditional Dabu printing technique and hand dyeing silks, velvets and linens with natural dyes.

The very popular rose pink, Portuguese wool bag. Also available in amber, teal and poppy red.
Drawing inspiration from the decorative Portuguese tiles or 'azulejos' in Porto, we thought how lovely it would be to block print onto the wool! Using these beautiful old blue and white ceramic tiles we designed an image suitable for printing, had a block carved in Sanganer and printed the Amber wool in russet orange.
Our little block was such a success, we've printed linen and pashmina shawls in teal and russet orange to match the wool.
