Our Christmas Wishes for You
As the shopping winds down and frenzy gives way to family time and festivities, the blog team at Saffron Marigold wants to wish you the very best this Christmas. We’re so glad that you’ve let us be a part of your lives this year. It always our intention to bring the best of artisan made linens and wares to your home, and along with them a little joy in the hands that have, and will, touch these unique pieces.
To round out the end of this season, we leave you with some wonderful “behind the scenes” photos of the crafters who have made your Saffron Marigold linens. Enjoy!

Block printed textiles are counted, packed and ready to be shipped out.
Camel drawn carts are often used to transport finished textiles from the villages to the marketplace or to the local trucking hubs.

I thought you’d enjoy a view of some of the real people who are behind the making of the lovely Saffron Marigold linens designed by Anisha Ghosh. Very happy holidays from our homes to yours.
