Blockshop Textiles embodies what it means to be ‘artisan made.’ Utilizing techniques used in Indian textiles over the past 350 years, the silk and cotton-blend scarves are as natural as they come. Each scarf is different, each design is unique and all of the scarves are are created and printed using only natural elements found in nature. Ingredients used in the process include dried onion skins, turmeric, pomegranate skins, mud, nuts and the sun. Each design is hand-carved into a wooden block and then hand-printed onto each scarf.
Blockshop Textiles is the creation of power trio Lily Stockman, Hopie Stockman and Vijendra Chhipa. Lily manages the designs while Hopie is at the helm of the business side and Vijendra brings a breadth of experience and knowledge as a fifth generation Master Printer. Blockshop also donates $2 from each scarf sold towards an initiative bringing a mobile eye care clinic to Bagru.
