It seems we are always looking for a dramatic graphic pattern for each project we design, so the crisp, graphic aesthetic of a classic wood print was a natural for us. We love the beautiful, timeless and imperfect handmade look of the block print and have an appreciation for the method of reproducing images on fabric that’s been in existence for over 2,000 years. With roots in ancient China, Egypt, Assyria and India, the block print’s series of repetitive patterns represents a classic in textile prints for both fashion and interiors.
