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!

    Obsessed! Thanks for sharing! Been pinning various block prints as I wanted to find pillows and napkins! All of these items are beautiful!

  2. I’m moving and plan on decorating my new living room in blue & white. These pillows are exactly what I’m in the market for! And having the chance to help a family at the same time? No brainer.

    Gorgeous! I’m really loving all of the blue and white prints.

    Unrelated, but I have been looking at photos of your parent’s beach house. I love everything about it. Do you mind if I ask what white they used on the fireplace?
