Pansies | Lavender Swatch
We took our cues from Joe Brainard's pansy paintings of the late 60s for this out of this world pansy pattern. A retro twist on the Victorian floral prints of our youth in an unusual palette of lavender, yolk yellow, and amber gold that’s easy to live with. It took 11 blocks to produce this work of art.

To make our block printed fabric, each design is traced onto a wooden slab, which then is carved by hammer and chisel into a printing block. The block is then printed meticulously by hand using soft, AZO-free, non toxic pigment.
Variation in printing & color are hallmarks of hand block printing and dyeing in small batches.
