With my baby girl now well and truly too old for sweet frocks, pastel colours and nappy covers, I still need my fix of pretty when it comes to buying for babies. Haveli Design is my current favourite for new baby gifts and first birthday presents, selling block printed baby blankets, cot sheets, bloomers, sun dresses, and more.
One of the things I love about Haveli Design is that the range is 100% hand printed using wood blocks. Most 'block printed' fabrics on the market are actually screen printed. The Haveli fabric is painstakingly done the traditional way, which means the designs are carved by hand into a wood block, then pressed in dye and stamped onto the cotton by hand. The result is delicate and unique, no two pieces are exactly alike.
