As a frequent traveler and full time textile designer I am finally creating my own patterns inspired by my favorite destinations and applying them to sarongs. Wrap yourself in fun patterns at the beach or dress up a casual outfit with a scarf. Lay on them and relax, read or soak up the sun. Traditional hand block printed with natural dyes in a small town in India, these sarongs provide a community income and sustain a centuries old tradition in textile design; while the packaging is biodegradable and plantable seed paper. My short term goal is to partner with a handful of boutique stores to test the market. The long term goal is to add natural beach accessories such as caftans, coverups, and wristlets - and keep on traveling.
Risks and challenges
Photographed is a finished and approved sample that we can have produced on a larger scale but hand printing can take time along with shipping from India so arrival time is hard to pin down. But since blocks are cut and color is approved it shouldn’t be too Ling a wait for your sarong if you choose to invest.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
