For over 10 years, Khoj Creations has been providing beautiful, wearable pieces that help support the artisans in Rajasthan, India who create them. Working from safe workshops or more conveniently from their homes, a caste of printers, known as chippas, stamp the fabric with hand-carved wooden blocks for incredibly unique designs.
These fair trade products are circulated all over the world, their designs being recognized widely for their beauty and depth. A kind of mud resist printing process called dabu allows chosen areas of a design to be reserved from dye. Indian dabu print artisans possess unparalleled expertise in the use of natural plant dyes and mordants, which help create a rich color by allowing the dye to adhere to the fabric. By using the combination of mordant and mud resist stamping, artisans are able to create truly unique and complex designs.
This craft of dabu printing is a skill passed down through generations, making the production of these prints a family endeavor. Artisans who have learned the skill of dabu printing tend to create traditional and classical varieties of prints which are generally considered the most authentic.
love my new Sandstone Open Cardigan have not had a chance to wear it yet but can not wait
I've been wanting this beauty for a very long time, and I'm happy to say, it does not disappoint! It's like a soft, silky t-shirt fabric (feels almost like bamboo) with some moderate stretch which holds it's shape very nicely. It's VERY comfortable - light, yet warm, if that makes sense! LOL Perfect to provide coverage without overheating in it. I did one size up because I wanted it to be flowy, and I'm glad I did - although I would say runs fairly TTS. Oh, and it is a perfect complement to the green Swirling Leaves Beaded Tunic! They make a fantastic set to go to Farmers' Market, the mall or a casual dinner outdoors!
I like it. Havent had a chance to wear it, but tried it on and I LIKE IT.
