why is our block printed bedding special?

we use 100% cotton khadi for all our bedding.

our prints are traditional motifs from our block printers archives.

our printer is a second generation woman owned company,

working in a beautiful jungle like setting in the middle of the city.

we think this all leads to good dreams and a restful night’s sleep.
