This pattern was inspired by the various rivers that travel the world and then connect somewhere. It reminds us of the friends and family who may be in different parts of the world, but stay connected. This black, blue and white scarf, was block printed using the DABU technique, which is a mud resist, and then dyed naturally. 

  • hand printed using carved wooden blocks
  • hand dyed in natural dyes 
  • color: black, blue, white
  • 25% silk, 75% cotton
  • 36" x 78" - inches 

 

* Please note that sizes may vary 1-2 inches and color variance may occur based on the intake of natural dyes per fabric

CARE: Be respectful of the fiber and give it a gentle hand wash for the first few washes. Be aware of any color bleeds in the first few washes.

Ichcha doesn’t just create a line of beautiful home products, they also work to greatly improve the lives of their women artisan partners in India and to promote the heritage craft of block printing, hand weaving, and hand embroidery. Ichcha is committed to having a minimal impact on the planet by only working with natural vegetable dyes made from flowers, leaves, minerals, trees, and bark. This ensures their products are safe for their artisans, consumers, and the earth. Ichcha’s handwoven fabrics are made from chemical-free cotton, handspun, and intricately woven on nomadic looms.

Through partnerships with NGOs, Ichcha’s artisans are taught both Hindi and English, and receive medical checkups for themselves and their families. Ichcha’s artisans also set their own prices. Each piece is designed in New York by the three sisters who run Ichcha and are handcrafted by women artisans in rural communities all across India.
