Hand block printing is one of the oldest form of complex fabric decoration, capable of repeating intricate design on endless lengths of cloth. The individual gesture used for each print action also transfers to the fabric the personal touch of the person performing this craft, with small irregularities and "mistakes" that add to the quality and uniqueness of the final fabric. The hand carved stamps lend their unique charm to the pattern as a whole, each successive trace being slightly different than the others.
This collection translates the hand printed pattern onto fabric using digital manipulation techniques, maintaining the appearance of a hand crafted item. The editing process allowed the isolation of different shapes from the original stamp, which where recombined to create a wide variety of compositions. The fabrics of this collection are all designed using only two stamps, used as a whole, or broken into elements.
