Hand Block Printed Pillow Covers
These colorful pillow covers are printed by hand in Jaipur, India,
in the centuries old craft of block printing. The traditional patterns we've chosen
are created using a virtual puzzle of hand carved wooden blocks, the making of which
is an art in itself. An individual block is needed for each color in the design.
Just imagine the skill involved! Each block is dipped in a different color and
carefully pressed to the fabric. This process is repeated to create the complete pattern.
Once finished, the fabrics are laid in the hot Indian sun to dry before being
tailored into the pillow covers you see below.
Each pillow cover is 18 inches square. Solid color back panel with concealed zipper. 100% cotton. Pillow inserts not included. (See Pillow Inserts.)
