overview

carved in tradition. This handcrafted table is a modern interpretation of the ancient art of block printing. In this historic craft dating back thousands of years, wooden blocks are handcarved by chhipa ("print") artisans, dipped in dyes and pressed onto fabric to create elaborate prints. Using only a modest hammer and chisel, the chippa create intricately detailed blocks whose patterns indicate class, occupation, regional origin and religion throughout northern India. Inspired by the renowned prints from the village of Sanganer where block printing is at the core of the culture, this shesham table is carved by artisans in neighboring Jaipur. Though the introduction of screenprinting and chemical dyes in the 20th century has threatened this craft, its beauty flourishes here in a pattern reminiscent of textile prints used in traditional clothing for men and women in Rajasthan.

CB2 Edition LMTD: CB2 Edition LMTD original works are offered one time only in a small reserve. This special CB2 Edition LMTD design has a limited-edition release of 175.
