The Maharani Collection was inspired by the elegant details contained within the Stairways and Archways of the palaces of Rajasthan, India. The intention of this curated collection of handmade dresses and skirts is to invoke your own regality, the queen within, when wearing our pieces.
The vision for the collection arose after morning meditation and conversation over coffee amongst the Sattva Sangha to share the vibrant colors, textiles and fashion design of India with the Sattva Community. These one of a kind block print patterns were custom designed by The Sattva Collection in collaboration with Maureen Walsh designs and brought to life by a local family in Begru, Rajasthan who have been handcrafting block print textiles for 4 generations. Each fabric handpicked, handied and handstitched with love and devotion to detail.
Block printing is an ancient Indian technique used to create patterned textiles. First an artist creates a pattern and then it is carved out of high quality wood, which forms a stamp. Once the block is completed it is applied with natural dyes and then handstamped onto the fabric. The fabric is then washed and dried. This process is very time and labor intensive as every detail has to be carefully paid attention. As we watched our artisans create we could really feel their devotion to the work that they are doing.
