Towards the end of each year when I sit down to design the new collection for the upcoming year, I try to explore new horizons in techniques, skills, artistry, and colors while maintaining the favorites of the current year. This time, my sense and sensibility was filled with inspiration from not only the colors and artistry of India, but from another continent far, far away - South America!
Stay tuned for the reveal of the Rajboori 2012 collection in a couple of weeks!
The colors used for block print need great amount of sunlight and dry weather for the true vibrancy to blossom. Once steamed in this huge steamers, they are washed and dried for the final effect and then finished appropriately as per the textile used. This time we've experimented with some beautiful handwoven linen fabric and I hope you will like them too.
