The Story

Colombia meets India in this curated package that includes a stunning block printed scarf from India and stunning "arracadas" earrings from Colombia. 

1) Handmade earrings from Colombia - These beauties were handmade by an artisan I met in Salento in the "coffee axis" of Colombia. They are handmade from bronze and hand threaded with thread. The style is called "arracadas." They sit more parallel with a slight angle. They are made that way...your profile view will be stunning!

 1.75" L x 1.5" W

2) Hand bock printed scarf from India - This vibrant, enchanting scarf has been hand block printed on the highest quality pure cotton using handmade teak printing blocks. For the scarf pattern, the printer designs from one to thirty print blocks, each of which takes two days to carve.  The artist uses a series of different wood blocks to fill in or add different details and colors to the design.

You will be mesmerized by its beauty and inspired each time you wear it by its detail and story. 

  • Dimensions: 15" W X 72"L
  • Handmade in India by Anohki

My appreciation for the intricate and precise art of hand printing was cultivated in the state where the technique of printing and dying fabric was honed, Rajastan, India.
