Our block printed Stella Collection have been hand stamped in India with carved wood blocks that have been dipped in natural dyes made from fruit, vegetables, bark and plants. It is one of the oldest forms of textile printing and is believed to have originated at least 2000 years ago. It is a slow, handmade process that is very labor and time intensive so it does not lend itself to mass production. All of our pieces are small batch and eco-friendly. 🌸
Our beautiful Stella Kimono is designed with the quintessential block-prints—a centuries-old technique survived by India, and a popular feature incorporated by our designer and loved by our wearers. This chemistry of colour and patterns has existed in the indigenous pockets of India where block printing grew synonymous with comfort in sweltering summers. These handcrafted prints are made on lightweight cotton, that make dressing up in hotter months a treat.
Please note that slight colour difference should be acceptable due to the light and screen.
