Lotus Flower Block Printed Napkin Gift Set

Regular price $ 44.50

Gift set includes four napkins and four napkin rings.

From Jubilee Traders, this set of four hand-block printed napkins in deep orange, red, and green looks right at home in a classic or contemporary setting. Each napkin is printed by hand in India: the carved block is inked, then pressed onto the cotton. The skilled artisans must carefully position the block each time, creating continuous and intricate patterns. No two hand-printed napkins will be exactly the same, which is what makes this process so special.

Block carving has long been a traditional craft in Sanganer, India where artisans hand-carve blocks of wood with intricate designs to use in the beautiful art of hand-block printing. Jubilee Traders, a fair trade company, has formed partnerships with artisans in Sanganer to help keep the important art of block printing alive.

This set of napkins is paired with a set of four napkin rings hand-carved from olive wood. Made by Bethlehem Fair Trade Artisans, an organization helping artisans in Palestine find opportunities to sell their handicrafts. Through these opportunities, craftspeople help support their families and fight poverty in an area where jobs are scarce. Artisans in the region have been carving olive wood for generations, and this set of napkin rings is a perfect example of a practical design that lets the natural beauty of the wood really shine. These napkin rings add a finishing touch, making this gift set perfect for giving as a unique wedding gift, housewarming gift, or host/ess gift.

Napkins are each 18" x 18" - 100% Cotton, Hand or Machine Wash Cold, Tumble Dry Low or Line Dry

Napkin rings are approximately 2" Diameter x 1" W
