Announcement   Modern, bohemian, and free spirited block print bedding for baby and you. Discover a melange of colors, lovingly hand printed on pure cotton. You will also find craft supplies and vintage decor from time to time.

FAQ:

Can you do custom block print designs and colors?

No. Currently we do not have the capability to do custom colors or designs. The most expensive component of block printing is making the color and making sure that it comes out perfect. This leads to a lot of wastage. Every season I typically choose 3-4 colors and use these across designs.

Can you do quilts and blankets in single, queen and king sizes?

We are working hard on prototyping and making these. Please follow us on Instagram (@kriti629) for updates or leave us your email id.

Can you gift wrap?

Ofcourse, and we will do it for free! Please leave a note while checking out if you need gift wrapping.

About

It took a few broken bones for me to realize my true calling!

I worked as a home furnishings buyer and merchandiser for 7 years working with some of the largest names in the business. In 2012, an ankle injury rendered me immobile for 8 weeks. My employers were in urgent need of a replacement and I ended up losing my job. After I spent a couple of months cribbing, I realized that the only one who could help me was - me!

This was when I decided to channelize my love for textiles, decor and interior styling into a creative outlet through my blog Handmade Talks. Losing my job was probably the second best thing that ever happened to me and I never looked back. I decided to pursue my passion for handmade via my Etsy shop.

I scout the markets of Hyderabad to find gorgeous supplies for all the creative people out there. It has become a medium for me to spread a part of my colorful country and culture. All the supplies in my store are either handmade or vintage.

My precious little boy arrived in November 2014 and has inspired me to create beautiful, luxurious children's bedding. He is the best thing that ever happened to me. I began exploring block printing as a technique for baby bedding. Wood block printing is an age old art wherein a skilled artisan hand carves design motifs into small blocks of wood. The wood blocks are then dipped into color to create beautiful prints on fabric or paper. During my research and chats with block print artisans, I was told that many of these blocks are usually created for a custom design and never used again. As a supported of sustainability and resource management, I challenged myself to use 'old' existing blocks for my designs instead of designing new ones. I realized that playing with existing patterns and motifs can get tough - there are times when I look at a design and wish that it was slightly larger, more spaced out or simply a two color design instead of one, but that is what keeps me motivated.

From time to time you will also see some wood blocks for sale. These are blocks that were once used to design and decorate fabric but no longer in use. They all have their own little story to tell and can be used to add texture to your home decor.

I also work with local NGOs and weavers in Hyderabad who create cotton ikat fabrics on hand looms. I am in the process of creating some beautiful napery, you will find some ikat kitchen towels listed in the store.
