Artisan Studio The art of craft

The artisan collection

Our new artisan collection is a celebration of beautifully made craft icon pieces. Traditionally block printed by hand, designed in London by our in-house team and made with considered fabrics - designed to wear and treasure forever.

This collection is an important part of our sustainable journey, with eco-friendly fabrics including organic cotton and LENZING™ ECOVERO™ making up this range. Combining sustainability and style in every piece.

Block printing

Carved and crafted from mango wood – each layer of colour is placed on top of each other. Borders are printed and designed in rows, before being cut and inserted into each garment.

Bandhani

Tied and twisted, each dot on the fabric is crafted by hand and layered up to show the different colours. The twisted cotton threads create areas where the dye doesn’t reach the cloth, before being layered up with colour and dyes to give the final look.

Screen printing

Our screen print designs are created digitally and processed on a reusable screen, before being washed and prepped ready to add the dyes, where the pattern will seep through the screen on the relieved areas.

The dyes are poured on the screen using a squeegee and then pulled back and forth over the fabric – after each layer has dried a different layer of colour is added.

Quilting

Fabric is placed and stitched with borders. Wadding is sandwiched in-between the fabric and overstitched to create the quilted finish.

Working with artisans

Since 1973, Monsoon has worked with craftspeople and homeworkers to create the unique hand-crafted Monsoon look and feel.

Our early collections were born from clothes made in Indian villages using hand embroidery, block prints and local crafts. It’s always been an important part of who we are and what we do. We have a continued commitment to using handcraft, that helps sustain skills and livelihoods, as well as adding something special and unique to our collections.
