In continuation of our handmade gift guides, I am sharing a favorite block-printed textile source today. Tulsi makes the most divine block-printed scarves, pillows, and table linens all printed in India with designs originating from owner, Tara Hogan’s glorious sketchbook. The organic, graphic designs add color and life to a wardrobe and home. Read more about this thoughtful company, below.
I like to feel that even though there are many things in the world we can consciously create usable items charged with a high vibration and frequency whilst supporting communities of artisan printers, weavers, and many more. Although the world is constantly making things, some things are made without care, joy, and fair compensation. Everyone should earn a fair wage and be able to stay dedicated to their craft be it drawing, sculpting or sewing. Hence, exercising sacred production on artisan made items based in good intentions and energy for you and your home.
Each piece we make is hand done from ink mixing to hand washing to stitching to block carving. Tulsi is rooted in nature and the people who create every piece of it. It is full of life and love. I am not simply making things to make things. I am creating for the purpose of creative life lived well and to provide employment to those who are keeping the sacred art of block printing and weaving alive. I am creating with intention and following a strong pull I have felt for a long time… A love for the interior spaces we inhabit and how we walk upon the earth leaving little trace of harm. We do not own the earth or the laws that govern nature hence respecting its beauty and revering its greatness. The Tulsi line represents the spontaneity of nature and the reciprocal beauty we innately feel to it. The greatest gift we can give is ourselves and service.
