A pillar of the SZ Blockprints ethos is giving back to our local community. We pledge 10 percent of our annual revenue to local organizations in and around Jaipur that promote the empowerment of girls and women, vocational training and education. As part of our 2018 giving we were able to purchase the uniforms and school bags for all 400 students of Helping Hands, Jaipur. Helping Hands is a non-profit school and vocational training centre that supports community members from the Kathputli slum in central Jaipur. Read more about Helping Hands here. Your purchases of SZ Blockprints make a difference.
The amazing team at J.Crew Sloane Square and Mission PR in London hosted us for a blockprinting PAR-TAYYY to celebrate the launch of our new spring collab. We had special London inspired blocks commissioned by our friends at Studio Bagru and printed totes and hand-made, recycled paper from Craft Boat. We had so much fun- just hope we didn't leave too much paint splatter behind! click here to shop our new quilted jacket. click here to shop our new tier dress and long kurta Our new fiends at the Kochi Kitchen provided the most delicious South Indian inspired snacks!
