Usually ready in 24 hours
Authentic block printed Indian pouch. Meticulously constructed, each block was individually hand printed with an outstanding amount of time. It is an ancient technique mastered throughout the generations. Every block is different from the next, making each one as unique as the artisans who made them.
Perfect for containing small items, such as toiletries, makeup, stationary, and more.
Aiding to keep the cultural crafting technique alive, we collaborate with our team of talented artisans in Jaipur to create exclusive, contemporary designs.
Pair with our matching Kantha quilts and pillow cases for a full set.
This Monkey Puzzle design has an extra-special place in our hearts. Co-founder Amy expresses her adoration for these (sadly) endangered trees by planting one in her garden. The gorgeous tree is Amy's childhood favourite. She was raised in the outskirts of London in what she describes had a "magical, enchanted monkey puzzle forest." It became the first Latin translation of a tree she ever learned too! (Araucaria araucana)
Amy designed the pattern and included the tiger and bee motifs. This is an artful tribute to endangered nature, something Amy and the team care about immensely.
In Jaipur, the bustling capital of India’s Rajasthan state, sits a family-owned textiles factory where our Indian Block Printed Textiles are made.
Meenu, the owner of the workshop, founded her business in 1993 and is dedicated to the preservation of the local art of hand block printing. The factory employs local artisans and also offers training to people living more rurally.
