Bay Leaf Woodblock Shirt
Juli Raja Hand Built is a true project of love for founder and independent designer, Juli Raja. Working with her husband's family's block printing studio in India, she creates exclusive wood block prints for hand-woven silk and cotton apparel.
After designing her patterns, short runs of fabric are hand-printed in her family's workshop to create limited edition collections that rarely exceed 25 pieces per color or print design. The beautifully tailored results feature Raja's signature hybrid of traditional and contemporary design, to make clothes that keep alive centuries-old craft techniques while maintaining their modern aesthetics.
Inspiration behind Bay Leaf "During a trip to Umbria, Italy, my husband and I were driving along a country road to the castle where we were staying. There were hundreds of small trees along the road. Each of them had been pruned and the branches spread out like in a star pattern beneath each tree. We noticed that the fallen limbs stayed there for days and then weeks. When we inquired as to what was going on, we were told that they were Bay trees and that was how they dried and then later collected the Bay leafs."
