Love Sprinkles Organic Cloth Napkin
These deep red organic cotton cloth napkins are printed by hand using a carved wooden block and then dyed in a bath of flowers. This block printing technique is called Dabu. Dabu is when mud paste is used in the printing process to block dyes from reaching some areas of the cloth. The rose pinks you see is the space where the mud paste stopped the red dye from seeping.
They are easy to wash and re-use!

Ich*cha started with a wish of three sisters to preserve and promote the beautiful handmade textiles that are slowly losing against the world that's passing by very fast! Rachna, Ruchika, and Monika were bothered that the handmade crafts and craftsmanship were so under-valued, especially in countries like India where, survival was more important. With the passion to do something about it, they travelled to India and met many artisans families and saw that most of them were connected with their art as a tradition passed down from their ancestors that they also wish to pass down to their children. The urge to become a part of this history in the making was too overwhelming for them to deny. And thus came ichcha, or 'a wish', to live and encourage everyone to live consciously; conscious of the environment and of the value and life of the products created and sought.
