BLOCK PRINTING

Screen Shot 2016-08-10 at 00.19.13
Block Printing is the most ancient form of printing on fabric (first found in the 12th century) and requires great skill and time. No machines are used, only the craft of heart and hand. Halo and Swan’s Signature Collection of cotton prints are first designed “in house” in Northern California by our founder Ella Zarum, who then travels to Rajasthan, India, to work closely with master block printers…Our Halo and Swan designs are first carved into wood blocks (each color in a print is a separate block) and then imprinted onto the cloth with mastery, creating fabrics of exceptional soul and beauty.
Made with love.
