Indian Block Printed Pillow Case 'Monkey Puzzle'

Authentic block printed Indian pillow case. Meticulously constructed, each block was individually hand printed with an outstanding amount of time. It is an ancient technique mastered throughout the generations. Every block is different from the next, making each one as unique as the artisans who made them.

Aiding to keep the cultural crafting technique alive, we collaborate with our team of talented artisans in Jaipur to create exclusive, contemporary designs.

Pair with our matching Kantha quilts for a full set.

This Monkey Puzzle design has an extra-special place in our hearts. Co-founder Amy expresses her adoration for these (sadly) endangered trees by planting one in her garden. The gorgeous tree is Amy's childhood favourite. She was raised in the outskirts of London in what she describes had a "magical, enchanted monkey puzzle forest." It became the first Latin translation of a tree she ever learned too! (Araucaria araucana)

Amy designed the pattern and included the tiger and bee motifs. This is an artful tribute to endangered nature, something Amy and the team care about immensely.

CARE

Our Indian block printed textiles are made using 100% Indian cotton and chemical free dyes. They can be machine washed on your coolest cycle (30 degrees and below). 

Take extra care with the mother of pearl buttons on cushion covers, we recommend washing anything with these buttons inside a delicates bag or standard pillowcase.

Always wash with similar colours and iron on a medium heat. 

They are not suitable for tumble drying or dry cleaning, please leave your textiles to dry naturally.   

Avoid placing them in direct sunlight as this may cause the dye to fade slightly.
