- Size: 15” x 18"
- No two bags are the same
This colorful handcrafted 100% cotton shopper is made by a group of artisans who specialize in hand wood block printed fabric in Northwestern India. Ramlal Khatri a very talented artisan who has won prestigious national awards for his wood-block printing is the head of the group. Block printing is a traditional art where hand-carved wood blocks are used to create patterns on fabric. He follows an environmentally-friendly process and uses 100% natural dyes. Block printing has been practiced for generations; originally used to create bed sheets, block printing yielded items, which were not very marketable, and this artisan group began to struggle.
It was not until Ramlal and his group came up with the idea to make more functional products using this age-old technique and traditional art, that the eco-shopper was born. These reusable, washable shopping bags, are made from locally-grown and woven, unbleached cotton. They are then hand-blocked using natural mineral and vegetable dyes. They have become the group’s best selling item, which has definitely impacted Ramlal and his group. Fair trade has helped Ramlal and his group reach a market, allowing them to live off of their art. This has kept the traditional wood-block printing knowledge alive. In addition, the group now has sustainable income, which they use to develop their community. Now Ramlal’s group has an opportunity to showcase its work on a world stage. Ramlal has now hired 20 extra tailors to help him stitch the bags made from his fabrics. His son is now planning on going to college, something Ramlal is very proud of.
