Summer Block Prints: Kalyana Textiles

When the weather starts getting warmer I find myself drawn to more bohemian styles, particularly block prints, a long standing personal favorite. Kalyana Textiles is a new small business that specializes in lovely home goods that are hand printed in India providing families there a sustainable source of income. It’s such a great business model and look at how fetching these prints are! And just for you, enjoy free shipping on your order through April 15th by using the code “EOSSHIP”. ( FYI- US orders only!)

The wood blocks used to print these designs are just as gorgeous as the prints themselves. Read about the block printing process on Kalyana’s site here, it’s so impressive and beautiful!
