Straddling both the ancient and the modern worlds, our Priya is a lavishly embellished cloth. Here are some images to show how it's made!

The Pollack studio's CAD artwork, after being hand drawn

On a natural linen ground, wide bands of machine embroidery use eight colors of lustrous thread to embroider intricate vertical stripes. The fabric is then transported to a small, traditional block-printing studio, where an individual artisan carefully positions a hand-carved wooden block, over and over again, to complete the simple printed columns that separate the embroidery.

The completed textile comes in three colorways; silver jewelry, peacock and sari.
