Blue Indigo Cotton Hand Block Print #125 By the Yard
Tribal tiles, or patchwork squares, in one dark indigo blue plus a blue-kissed, batik-look light gray, in this rustic block print from India. Lightweight 100% cotton, lighter than quilting cotton but not quite as light as voile. (It weighs almost 3 ounces per yard; quilting cottons are about 4-6 ounces/yard.) Very smooth and soft, it's perfect for warm weather apparel; tops, dresses, tunics, blouses, wraps, scarves, tables, windows, beds and accessories. The print was created by the traditional techniques of hand carved teak blocks, dipping each block for each color into its dye and hand stamping on to the fabric. There are printing imperfections - don't expect each tile to match :). Limited supply artisan-created 100% cotton from India.
43/44" Wide. Sold by the full yard and yours will be cut in one continuous piece.
Some care for their cotton block prints by hand washing in cool water separately and drying in the shade. Others have had good success machine washing and drying, so test first and find what works for you and the particular fabric. Expect some dye transfer at first, especially with darker colors like these.
