Anokhi

From the 15th of october untill the 15th of December 2009 i was in Jaipur, India working for a fantastic company called Anokhi. Anokhi is a fair trade company, promoting and sustaining oringal and traditional Indian crafts such as wood block printing, I designed all over prints and border prints suitable for use with woodblocks and for embroidery. I spent 2 weeks working on a village indigo plant called Jahota where I experimented with existing Anokhi blocks to come up with new textures. The experience of living and working in such a different culture and environment was invaluable. I became inspired by the Anokhi work ethic as well as the plethora of Indian textiles I observed both at Anokhi and while travelling in Rajasthan.
