About

Studio Bagru is excited to launch our first artist collaboration with Petra Valentova for the Fall 2017 Collection. This collection includes hand block printed scarves printed on a premium blend of silk cotton. Each scarf is hand block printed with your initials, and comes in a block printed cotton hand stitched bag.

Bagru is a small Indian town located thirty kilometers outside of Jaipur - the capital of Rajasthan. While many Rajasthani villages have turned to screen-printing as an alternative to block printing, Bagru has remained loyal to its history, culture, and craftsmanship. This makes it one of the last existing hubs for this niche process.

 Block printing is a community endeavor. The artisans we work with are masters of their craft, whether it is block carving, washing, printing, dying, or using dabu (resist) paste. Their skills have been developed not over the years, but through generations.  

This 400-year-old tradition has seen little variation since its inception. In a world where technology transforms, we are transforming a business by maintaining its deep-rooted traditions. These roots are the beating heart of what goes on at Studio Bagru, and what we believe provides our company with so much character.

Risks and challenges

Block printing is a meticulous craft that takes time. We have planned accordingly so the scarves are all printed in time to reach you by the start of the Fall season.
