Weaving a Tale of Craft and Community: Introducing Rias Jaipur's Hand-Blocked Cotton Scarves

Embark on a journey with Flourish Planet as we celebrate the artistic brilliance of Rias Jaipur: Where tradition and sustainability intertwine.

In the heart of Rias Jaipur's creations lies a meticulous 11-hour journey. Artisans delicately weave cotton yarn, employing an extra warp technique to create the enchanting kantha effect. The scarves, a canvas of vibrant hues, emerge through an intricate process of hand-printing with wooden blocks and a palette of natural colors.

The detailed production process involves choosing cotton yarn, manual weaving, applying an extra warp technique, hand-carving wooden blocks, preparing azo-free colors, and carefully executing the blocking process.

Beyond the threads and dyes, Rias Jaipur weaves a narrative of impact. They prioritize authentic storytelling for their artisans, adhere to fair trade practices, provide global market access for co-operatives, and actively contribute to cultural preservation for future generations.

With a dedicated team of 20-25 artisans, Rias Jaipur ensures their integral role in the process. Adopting looms for year-round production, the brand maximizes profits for artisans and focuses on skill development.

The brand also champions low environmental impact by working with renewable resources.
