The World of Block Prints

My trips to Jaipur are incomplete without visits to Soma and Anokhi, retailers specializing in the art of traditional Rajasthani block printing. In addition to apparel, they merchandise a creative array of home goods. This entails everything from curtains, bedding, comforters, cushion covers to table linens, place-mats, luggage and tea cosies. The collection is simply delightful.

Anokhi offers a spectacular assortment of block prints categorized by Pinks, Purples and RedsBlues and Greens and Dark Neutrals and Naturals on their website. Do check it out for some viewing pleasure.

Naturally, I consider it my duty to incorporate block prints into my decor.
