As you should know by now, I am a huge lover of indian block printing and thus an avid collector of Kerry Cassill bedding. So I was delighted to discover this video that West Elm produced after meeting hand-block printing artisans on a recent trip to northern India’s Rajasthan. Watch as they intricately carve patterns out of teak blocks and create prints using richly colored pigment dyes. It’s beautiful and truly awe inspiring!
