A beautiful light blue print on a clean white base. The design is printed by hand using wooden "hand-blocks". The dyes are totally ironable and colourfast (although we always recommend washing your fabrics before you make) and the fabric can be washed in washing machines.

Originally from India, the ethnic print has a rustic, authentic and unique quality to it.  It is a fabric that will transend seasons and works in both fashion and interiors. It is a soft, heavy muslin, with an open weave and a wonderfully warm and soft texture. It is quite see-through, so would need doubling up or lining for garments.  Ideal for a lightweight, summery set of curtains, headboards, or pillow cases with underlining.  

Due to the hand-woven style of this fabric, it may contain some small weaving irregularities, but this adds to its rustic appearance and doesn't affect the look or quality. The dyes are azo-free and the cotton is organic and totally biodegradable. The weaving and printing is done in a cooperative and certified Fair Trade by the WFTO. As it is a hand-made product, the process uses virtually no energy or water!
