The monsoons are over and the Ajrakh is here!



Available online.

It has been an exceptionally long, wet, monsoon in the Kutch Desert - where our Ajrakh is made. This is a good thing. As you can see on the left, the reservoir of the ancient walled-city of Bhuj is full. The desert is in bloom. People have prospered. But, sadly, you can't blockprint during the monsoon.

So our Ajrakh order was delayed until the rains stopped. But now the order is finished, shipped, unpacked, and in the store - and what a glorious spectacle it is!

A line of bedding that fills your room with the exquisite delights of India. You will also enjoy the feeling of organic cotton, dyed naturally in a rich beautiful palette. Hand printed by the master craftspeope who have practiced the art for generations.

For more details about organic certification and to see this sensual line of bedding please visit our Granville Island Store, located in the Net Loft, Granville Island, Vancouver.

100% Certified Organic Cotton. Hand blockprinted and naturally dyed by master craftspeople.
