A Large Hand Block Printed Sarong: Cat Heads from People Tree
44" x 71", 111.5 cm x 180.5 cm
How can you resist this weird and wonderful cotton cloth? People Tree, an innovative textile design group based in New Delhi, India, creates fabulous, offbeat prints which are made using hand carved wood blocks.
This one is just kooky pleasure: a repeat pattern of cat faces which look remarkably life-like, each of which has a kind of devilish charm.
Machine finished, this hand dyed cotton cloth is a novelty and a curiosity, and certainly it makes you think about creating prints in a new way.
Some imperfections in the printing, and a few very pale, narrow areas of light fading on the bottom border.
