Block Shop scarves are the most beautiful, wearable scarves you’ll ever own. They’re an Indian textile company founded by sisters Lily and Hopie Stockman. They work with the Chhipa family of master printers based in Bagru, India, who have been hand block printing with natural dyes for over 350 years. Their textiles are printed one at a time with carved wooden blocks and non-toxic vegetable dyes on the finest Indian silk-cotton blend.

Long time readers will know how much I love block printing. I think it’s the carving that I enjoy the most - it’s so rewarding seeing your design ‘come to life’ and seeing it printed onto fabric or paper. This DIY is to make napkins but you can print onto anything - you could even block print a repeat pattern onto a plain quilt cover! If you’re not sure about what to design, do a search on google and get inspired. You just might find a new passion!
A long time ago we learned our first lesson about block printing with linocut at school. Now we spotted Derrick Castle, designer and typographer from Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Living in Nashville, he has been exposed to mixology and more modern interpretations of classic cocktails through friends that he has in the bartending industry. To pay tribute to some of his favorite classic cocktails he started with this series of block prints you can see above. As a city were music is born and celebrated every day he dedicated some works also to this soundful center of the south. Enjoy his work!
