More About This Tunic
Premadaya's clothing is made in the region of Pushkar at a small factory that employs 6 to 8 village residents under Fair Trade conditions.
Hand block printing is a meticulous process involving hand-dipping carved wood blocks in bowls of pigment dyes and imprinting them on the kurti fabric. This is a modern twist on an age-old process — the block printing concept dates back hundreds and perhaps thousands of years. The result is a beautiful tapestry of color and design. The pigment inks are contemporary, permanent, and machine-washable — great for the modern person. Our fabrics are printed by the Ragwir family, who live near Pushkar, in Rajastahn, India.
