MARINE BLOCK is a new collection of hand block printed scarves inspired by Art Deco Bombay. A collaboration with East London Textile Designer Gail Bryson and Indian inspired lifestyle brand Napeansea, the scarves are unique in their contemporary design combined with a traditional hand-block print method. The printed oversized spots and stripes feature unusual combinations of charcoal black and faded chalky brights and are edged with imperfectly printed borders.
Craft : Hand Block Printed. Each block is skilfully hand carved then patiently lined up by eye upon the fabric. Precision is paramount since with many colours, multiple blocks are required that must each fit perfectly within the imprint of the first. It is through the makers hand and skilled printing process that we find beauty in the design’s imperfections making each scarf a unique piece.
