Fall always seems like an optimistic season to me -- new school year, new beginnings, new crafts! I'm very excited about the block-printed shawls we're receiving this week. Now we've all seen block-printed fabrics -- they are not rare. But some block-printed fabrics are not really block printed -- that is, they are not printed by hand with wooden blocks carved with the fabric's design. Some are just machine printed. And there are many block-printed fabrics that are the real thing, and some are beautiful. But the shawls that we're getting are jaw-droppingly beautiful! The patterns and colors are so vivid and gorgeous. Take a look at the photo below which shows some of the prints:
I think you'll agree that they are amazing. And the size is a generous 77 x 47 inches -- you can wrap them as shawls, cozy scarves or use them as sarongs. We'll have them this weekend at the Long Island City Flea & Food, and if we don't sell them all, we'll put them on the website. If you're interested, drop me an email.
