Handcrafted for a home that tells a story, Soil to Studio's linen collection is feminine and playful, makes a statement, and is a beautiful amalgamation of craft and design. Inspired by the vibrant colors worn by local communities in the Thar desert, the collection represents ‘The Great Indian’ desert. The colors signify their culture, identity, and way of living.
Block-printed by a small workshop run by a nephew and uncle team, they are passionate about their craft. They say ‘no’ to higher-paying factory jobs because this is what they identify themselves with – craft which their fathers and grandfathers mastered and passed it down to them. What seems like a simple stamping process, requires incredible skill, practice, and a very steady hand. Soil to Studio loves and supports block printed fabrics that tell a story of craftwork, human touch, and of the people and families behind the craft. By choosing this handmade piece, you help support rural artisan communities.

We invite you to get to know Swati who was born and raised in a small town in northwest India and established Soil to Studio to bring India’s rich culture and artisan textiles to the world. As a child, she spent summers embroidering bedspreads with her mother and grandmother as they shared stories, techniques, and heritage with her. Swati grew up to become a banker, but the urge to create could not be ignored. Today, she follows her passion and is working with the craft communities in India, mastering weaving and printing techniques for her lovely creations.
