It’s been an action packed December and full of exciting developments for Woven Oak. We have been working with our printers in Jaipur to put our spring/summer 2012 collection together. To see each design processed from the initial colour swatches to the final fabric prints and tailoring has reminded us of the hard work that goes into each finished product. There is no quick fix with this age old process. Its slow unfolding nature is to be marvelled at in an age where instant results are the norm. Each block is rhythmically stamped by hand. The fabric is then hung to react and dry in the hot Indian sun before it is washed and stitched.
