Block Shop is a Los Angeles-based textile brand and design studio founded by artist sisters Hopie and Lily Stockman. They started with a small collection of scarves in 2013 made in Jaipur, India, with the goal of supporting and celebrating the Indian hand block printing tradition.
All scarves from Block shop are printed by hand using wooden printing blocks in Bagru, Rajastan. Whenever possible the dyes used are of vegetable or mineral origin, accompanied by small amounts of non-toxic chemical dyes that are sometimes used to enhance the colors.
Block Shop believes in small-scale production, fair wages for workers, and healthy working conditions and 5% of their profits are invested each year into their community health and empowerment programs in Jaipur. .
