This is the first charpai I carved for printing. A charpai is a wooden framed bed made with cotton cord woven across the frame. Charpai literally means four legged in Urdu, and is a traditional Pakistani bed. The tiles printed in yellow or green have been taken from a Mughal print and the night sky is inspired by stories I've heard of summer nights spent sleeping out in the open on a charpai.

This print is a literal interpretation of these stories and my hope is that these stories, in this print, finds a forever home with you. I'm offering these prints in two colour options: black and yellow; and blue and green. The colour combinations have also been inspired by combinations of colours in Mughal paintings. Each print is hand carved, inked and burnished, so there will be variations in the print to what you see pictured here and it means that you're buying a truly unique print. Each print is also hand signed by the artist across the right panel.

This edition is printed on yummy HoSho paper. The print, ink and paper combined have a velvety feel.

I offer free delivery on all my prints. In these times I do recommend checking out with the upgraded delivery option to ensure your print reaches you in good time. Your print will be posted in a C4 'do not bend' envelope on Tuesday or Friday depending on the day you check out. And if you're in an absolute rush, just send me a message and I'll post your print to you the following day when you check out with Domestic/International delivery upgrade.

I am absolutely blown away but how beautiful this print is in person! I bought it as a present for my boyfriend who moved to the US from Pakistan at the age of 9. I'm hoping it reminds him of his childhood, his visits, and his family there. I also have to say the handwritten note and the included extras were such a sweet, personalized touch. Will definitely be ordering from this shop again! Shukriya!

I really love it! I also love the stickers and extra prints that were added to my order. The stickers are now on my laptop for everyone to see them and the Charpai is on my wall (I can't find my phone right now, so no picture for now). I really love the detailed carving of the prints. Thank you for making such great art, Sunbul!

The prints came with lovely extra items. A truck print, a hand written card and some stickers from the artist. Receiving the delightful, hand wrapped package made my day. The charpai prints are my fav and the paper used is truly wonderful.

What a beautiful print! So striking and unusual and beautiful strong colours. Thank you Night Press! Amazingly packaged with care and attention to detail, felt like a real treat to open. Arrived on time. Great communication, easy to use shop, the only difficult thing is deciding which print to buy. Thank you Night Press. XX
