Printed in Jaipur












Textile Factory and Block Printing.

I did a work placement for a month in Jaipur, Rajasthan which is in the North of India at a company called Ratan Textiles. Well it was my first experience out of Goa, it feels like a real India in comparison, a colourful state that is know for its textile printing and dying. I was given a specific brief to create a collection that gives an illusion to the eye that encourages the user to feel the fabric to see whether it is a textile or not.  An enriching experience; going from research, experiementing to print and production. It was such a great insight into production on a scale that I've never seen before...

how many palaces?










I spent the month of February doing a work placement for a month in Jaipur, Rajasthan which is in the North of India, a colourful state that is know for its textile trade and a city full of beautiful palaces...
