With the arrival of a huge delivery of amazing hand block fabrics into the shop, I’m reminded just how beautiful this gorgeous Hand Block Chakra Canvas is. So I thought, what better way to celebrate it than to feature it as our #FabricOfTheWeek!
It’s a chunky fabric, printed with black, azo-free inks onto organic canvas. I’ve called it a canvas, but it really has a surprisingly good drape, so don’t think of it as inappropriate for clothes or soft furnishings! Although, if it is a little heavy for you, we do have the same print on a cambric fabric as well.
As I the name “hand block canvas” would suggest, the black designs are printed onto the organic canvas using a “hand-block” technique. If you look closely, you’ll see that the pattern is a repeated square. Each square is printed using a stencil carved out of a block – sort of like potato printing! It has a truly rich and authentic feel. What is more, the dyes are totally ironable and colourfast (although we always recommend washing your fabrics before you make).
