The Hand Block Print Story
Block printing is one of the oldest form of printing and it’s believed this method is over 12,000 years old.
The sill is generally past down from generation to generation and it is a very skilled art form, where a design is hand carved into a wooden blocks and natural dyes are used for printing.
The fabrics are then dried in the sunshine before the tailors create beautiful garments
The Vintage Sari Story
The humble sari is at the core of Pink Lemons, we love working with recycled products and this is one of our favourite fabrics.
We have been working with the vintage Sari since 2018, it is always exciting hand picking each sari that have come from all over India, their beautiful prints and colours is at the heart of Pink Lemons.
We up-cycle these fabrics into modern silhouettes and in-turn help the environment by creating less waste and give the textiles a new lease of life.
Hand Screen Printing Story
Our hand silk screen printing is done by Artisans, who use a traditional frame method on our 100% Organic cotton fabric with eco dyes.
The ink is squeezed over the screen, creating intricate patterns on the fabrics , sometimes a few screens need to be used to create the design and all the colours.
The artisans need a indepth knowledge of how to layer the colours in each design which generally is past down threw the generations.
The fabric is dried in the sunshine and then made into pretty silhouettes
The Deadstock Collection
Our Deadstock Collection represents our enduring roots within the world of sustainability.
Every piece gathered here is made from rescued and revitalised fabric that would otherwise be cast aside and eventually end up in the land fill.
In giving these unique fabrics another life cycle , we in turn are helping the environment and Mother Nature and also creating something unique and beautiful to wear.
We believe in working with organic cotton fabrics as its better for water than conventionally produced cotton, better for the environment and for the people who harvest this crop.
Organic is the only system which eliminates highly toxic substances from the environment and instead works holistically for the long term health of people and planet.
Where possible we create woollen clothing using Fair Trade hand knitted Wool/mohair or Wool/organic cotton which is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment and the people who work with it.
