Block Shop is a Los Angeles-based textile brand that combines 1920's Bauhaus vibes with traditional dyeing techniques. All scarves from Block shop are printed by hand using wooden printing blocks in Bagru, Rajastan and 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.
The Rose Hip is inspired by stained glass windows found in the arts and crafts bungalows in LA. To the nordic eye it resonates of old iron gate designs, and could also be a perfect reference to the midnight sun. The peach color is really enhanced by the fabric, which is a silk/cotton blend with a lovely lustre and drape.
