Tradition Lives

July 24, 2020

India is a land full of ancient history, diverse culture, and breathtaking geography.

From taking in the Indus-scribable views,

to seeing what the Taj of the town is all about,

to realizing that this is as good is it Ghats,

India is incredible and there’s truly naan place like it.

And what else is India known for? Its fabrics! 

The design and technique utilized here is hand block print, an artform rooted within the region of and around Jaipur. Whilst wondering the streets, one will immediately notice the print upon tote bags, vests, and saris. As this motif by hand is a dying skill within the nation, the people of Jaipur are dedicated to keep it alive.” - Traveler Sagheer Khan

 

Here’s to keeping your traditions alive & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!
