Unique hand block from Jaipur. 100% summer weight cotton. 110cm wide. Traditional hand block and dye techniques are used to make this wonderful rural cloth. This fabric is indigo dyed. For the first couple of washes, place the fabric in the washing machine drum at 30 or 40 degrees with a handful of table salt. This will help fix the dye to prevent it from running, however, Indigo will continue to get lighter over time as it will never truly fix.
Ideal for tops, trousers, and dresses and the following patterns in the Merchant & Mills Workbook: Bantam, Heron and Saltmarsh.
#WHO MADE ME?
There are some brands that inspire creativity. Merchant & Mills is top on our list. Their purpose is to make (or more precisely get YOU to make) clothes, not fashion. In curating and designing patterns, fabrics and tools, make our fingers itch to start designing, cutting and making. The two creators behind the brand are Carolyn Denham, who has a degree in Fashion Design and has worked in New York, Italy and London and Roderick Field, a respected photographer with works in the National Portrait Gallery and keeps the look of the brand through his gorgeous product photos.
