The block-printed textile is carefully applied to a flax linen substrate, which provides a border between the textile and frame. This piece is offered in our lucite frame. Our signature gold St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of each piece.
*Please note that as unique, handmade art, no two pieces are ever exactly the same and color varies across monitors. Our website photos are a close representation of this work, but may not be identical to the piece you receive.
Surface gloss can be maintained by using a soft cloth and specialty plastic cleaner or polish, following cleaning fluid container instructions.
Begin by gently blowing away any loose dust or dirt from the lucite surface. Using a mild soap solution or a plastic cleaner and a non-abrasive lint-free cloth, wipe the surface using light pressure. To remove grease, oil, or tar deposits use hexane or kerosene followed by a soap solution.
Fine scratches may be removed by hand polishing with a plastic polish scratch remover. Remove all residue and polish with a soft cloth.

The art of block printing began in the state of Rajasthan, India, in the 18th century. The process uses wooden blocks and fabric dyes to produce geometric patterns or patters inspired by the flora and fauna of nature. First, the blocks are hand carved from seasoned teak. Then, an expert color master creates any shade, tint, tone, or hue. The blocks are dipped in the dye and imprinted on linen in a precise repeat. Finally, the linen is dried in the sun for several days to set the color. This design was inspired by the iconic architecture of the Amber Fort, located in the outskirts of Jaipur, Rajasthan. This massive compound was built during India's Mughal period. It is known for its artistic blend of Hindu and Mughal elements, showcasing the exquisite art and architecture of Rajasthan.
