BEHIND THE SCENES: SCREEN PRINTING THE KEYA LUMBAR

Did you know there aren't any factory machines involved in the making of any of our cushions? Take our Keya Lumbar for example. The base fabric is hand weaved and then the design is hand screen printed onto it. Screen printing is a distinct, versatile technique that uses mesh to artfully layer ink onto fabric, one color at a time and this gorgeous piece has a lot fo colours!

All of our screen-printed pieces are produced by our artisan partners in South India who are reviving a once-thriving industry and providing sustainable employment for their community. Their local artisans have deep roots that inspire a wealth of diverse design.

Here’s how the screens are made:

STEP 1 - Outer  Frame (made of Iron pipe) is made according to size of the design.

STEP 2 - Nylon mesh will be fixed on this Frame

STEP 3 - Mesh should be thoroughly dried on the Frame 

STEP 4 - Now the Screen is ready. Total screens will be prepared according to design/ colors

STEP 5 - Tech pack design will be converted into Film format

STEP 6 - Film will be taken into Dark room and exposed on the  Screen.

STEP 7 - Now the Final Screen is ready for printing.

STEP 8 - Each colour is printed separately

“While most find India to be overwhelming, I embrace the chaos. Its imperfections and beauty beg be discovered and inspire creativity. The more time I spent in the country, I quickly learned to adapt to the madness where life is lived with more fluidity. Take a deep breath and embrace the Ana Jana collection.”
