Giveaway weekend!

saffronmarigold Hello there peeps! Hope your weekend is going great! I have a fantastic giveaway for you all this weekend!

Saffron Marigold offers a beautiful selection of linens that are just lovely. I am truly fascinated by process behind their gorgeous handcrafted Indian bedding and linens – each one truly is a piece of art!

Before I show you the linens, I have to show you some of the steps it takes to make them. I was amazed!

Each stamp starts with a block of wood -- the carving process begins with planed slices of shesham wood:

The artisan’s create a free hand drawing of the design on tracing paper and then transfer it onto the planed surface of the wood block:

Then the block maker works with a hammer and chisel to create this, the stamp:

Isn’t that fantastic? It is so intricate, it takes my breath away! I can’t even begin to imagine how long that must take – and that’s just one block!

The printing begins with the stamping of the of the 'outline'. The most experienced artisan is assigned this task since it provides the framework for which the rest of the design is printed:

Then the designs are filled in with color and the linens are washed and stitched into a number of gorgeous options – including bedspreads and duvet covers:

With shams and pillow covers to match:

I think of all of their items, the sheers are my favorite. They are so light and airy, but so rich and full of color too!:

Of course they have beautiful white sheers as well, some with a pretty little bead detail at the bottom:
