Block Printed Napkin - Lotus
Cloth napkins are eco-friendly! No need for disposables when cloth napkins will last for years and years and years. These hand-block printed cotton napkins feature orange and red lotus flowers, and look right at home in any setting. Each napkin is printed by hand in India: the carved block is inked, then pressed onto the cotton. The skilled artisans must carefully position the block each time, creating continuous and intricate patterns. No two hand-printed napkins will be exactly the same, which is what makes this process so special.
Block carving has long been a traditional craft in Sanganer, India where artisans hand-carve blocks of wood with intricate designs to use in the beautiful art of hand block printing. Living Imprints, a fair trade company, has formed longstanding partnerships with artisans in Sanganer to help keep the wonderful art of block printing alive. They use only eco-friendly, non-toxic dyes.
