Over two thousand years ago, the ancient art form of hand block printing was developed and passed on to expert artisans from generation to generation. Seasoned teakwook blocks are carved with intricate patterns and are individually stamped on to the fabric by hand, creating an overall print design. This tedious process can take many long hours to complete a single garment. Smudging and the variance in impression are a part of the characteristics of block print art. This adds to the overall beauty and enhances the fabric to where no two garments are the same. Barbara has married this ancient art with a pallet of bright happy colors and has created a high fashion resort collection of tunics and tops to be worn at your favorite beach resort or spa.
