C26.7 - Hand Printed Cotton Cambric - Marrakesh ***
Print Name: Hand Printed Cotton Cambric - Marrakesh *** (3 Stars)
Fabric: 100% Cotton - Woven, non-stretch
Description: This is a light weight fabric. Cambric weave is soft and flexible, it gets a bit pebbled once it is laundered. It has good drape. The design is hand printed on to the fabric with carved wooden blocks. This is sort of a linear medallion type motif that reminded me of Morroccan tiles. It's a black background with blue and dark red. Perect travel fabric,nothing shows on this. While this is a light weight fabric, due to the amount of ink coverage, it is not sheer. See the "more info" tab for a description of the printing process.
Care: Machine Wash Cold / Tumble Dry
Shrinkage: Vertical 2 % *
*if you hang your garment to dry instead of machine drying it, you do not need to worry about shrinkage.
While this is a hand created print, it is done with hand cut silk screens instead of carved wood blocks. You'll still get the variations that let you know it's artisinal, but it does have more saturation and uniformity than a wood block print.
