Nila’s ‘Botanical’ tablecloth carries a cascade of over 60 unique floral designs bespoke prints created by British artist Hugo Guinness. This stunning collection of delicate botanical designs were printed at the artisan studio Yusa Naturals in Ahmedabad. They expertly translated this complex design of motifs with screen-printing using natural indigo in the deep ‘Shade 6’. By printing with screen instead of blocks, the natural indigo is saved from premature oxidisation and ensures colour-fastness.
The tablecloth is made of linen handwoven by women artisans on looms at the Kanhirode Weavers Cooperative Society in Kannur, Kerala. Over 400 spinner and weavers are affiliated with the cooperative, which is working to uplift traditional communities of weavers by championing their traditional skills, particularly spinning and weaving.
The tablecloth also carries a subtle embroidery in white across the width, which also serves as an elegant connector for two pieces of individually printed fabrics. The hand embroidery has been done in an independent artisan studio in Jaipur, working with artisans specialising in the chikankari and aari techniques of Uttar Pradesh.
The Nila Botanical tablecloth is a unique addition to a space, celebrating the beauty of handmade processes and evoking a sense of wellbeing. Pair it with our set of four Botanical napkins to make a complete set of table linens, perfect for an outdoor setting or to bring a little bit of nature’s goodness indoors.
Composition & Care
Hand wash separately in cold water. Handwoven textiles may carry subtle irregularities; this is a part of the beauty of textiles made by hand. The tablecloth will soften with regular washing. Once ironed, the fabric will regain its original crispness
