Sunset Lover was inspired by my travels to India earlier this year. Originally I was in Jaipur to shoot an amazing campaign with my friend and talented stylist, Megan Morton. Megan had approached me with the idea of shooting in Jaipur and I could not say no to such an opportunity. I went about creating and designing a stunning Indigo collection that you will see in late Summer, so more about that later!
While I was there I visited several textile businesses and was lucky to watch the artisans hand dye and create these stunning textiles. Seeing the amazing block printing process first hand and then learning how to do it was such a treat. Watching on as each colour is added one on top of another to create the patterns, such an art form.
Block Printed Fabric was an unexpected addition that I knew Little Tienda customers would appreciate just as much as I did, after all, hand made wearable art is everything Little Tienda aims to be. I was lucky enough to connect with a beautiful family run textile business and immediately hit it off with the owners daughter, Nandini, this is our first collection from her family. I hope that you enjoy Sunset Lover as much as I enjoyed creating it.
