Stardust A line Dress

Block Printed Kala Cotton

Block printing is a slow process but highly rewarding. It begins with an artisan chipping and chiselling a block of wood into an intricately patterned stamp. These blocks are then used to stamp dyes (or mud in some cases) onto fabric, to give birth to beautiful block printed stories. Some of these stories have lived generation after generation, and some others are reinvented for the 21st century. Kala cotton, also known as old world cotton, is special for a reason. Unlike other cash crops, cotton for this fabric is grown without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilisers and is watered entirely by the rains. It is then carefully picked, spun into yarn and weaved into fabric—all by hand. Truly organic in every step of its process, Kala cotton encourages sustainable textile production, empowers artisans and revives traditional farming practices all while making a beautiful fabric. Grassroot works with artisans in rural India to bring employment opportunities back, thereby making every village a self-sustaining unit.
