The story of our block print linens

We create our exclusive designs in Petaluma, California and bring them to life at our studios in Rajasthan, India. Unique and affordable, our textiles have generations of skill and  tradition embedded within their fibers.   Using chiseled wood blocks, our artisans transform fabric into works of art that celebrate color and pattern.

Hand block printing exists in a parallel to industrialization.  Block print textiles once played an integral role in village life. A growing appreciation of block printing in international markets keeps the ebbing craft  alive today. 

About Saffron Marigold

Saffron, a spice prized for its golden hue and delicate aroma, is considered the ultimate garnish in Indian cuisine. Likewise, the marigold flower is a revered offering in India. As Saffron Marigold, we hope our collections add that special touch and become valued treasures in your home.
