I had the good fortune to work in Mumbai, India for several months in my old corporate life. At the end of my project, I got to do some travelling around the country and needed an extra suitcase for all of the cotton, silk and cashmere I bought along the way (plus some jewellery because a girl can't live on fabric alone!).
Jaipur is the capitol of block printed cottons, made with wooden carved blocks that have been in use for decades and generations. The fabrics are hand printed, using bright colours and creating exquisite patterns that are graphic, pretty, bold and delicate.
Note - it's in the "cotton lawn" section of our fabrics because it's very light, but it's not quite as soft or fine as a Japanese lawn, this Indian cotton starts out a little stiffer and will get increasingly soft as you wash it. Also, please bear in mind that this is a hand printed product, there may be some slight irregularities.
Spark - I have several garments made out of Indian cotton, it is breathable, wearable, washable and softer every time I launder it. I use it for tops, nightgowns, bathing suit cover ups for its cool effect, and big scarves in the fall.
Please note that all fabric is sold in 1/2 yard increments. If you want 1 yard, please order a quantity of 2. If you want 2 yards, you will need to order a quantity of 4.
