Due to being handmade this item may have slight variations in colour, texture and print. But that's what makes it so beautiful and unique.
At Aware... the social design project we LOVE block printed clothing. It is firstly the preservation of culture, as block printing is a traditional form of fabric design. The process starts with the hand carving of the block of wood, then it is stamped onto the fabric.
Boom Shankar is made just near our own in house label in Pushkar, India and we have checked it out and are satisfied that they are an Australian brand that upholds high ethical production standards worthy of being included in our social re-design fashion collection.
