The creation of Crimson Peacock has been an incredible adventure, connecting Penzance in Cornwall with Jaipur in Rajasthan, my two favourite places!
Hidden away in my Shepherd Hut in Cornwall, I designed a fabulous range of nightwear. I booked a flight to Jaipur and had the adventure of a lifetime, sourcing fabric, setting up the manufacturing process and of course soaking up the incredible sights, sounds and smells of India!
A year later and I have designed a new nightwear collection and a daywear collection too. This time, the pandemic prevented another Indian adventure, but there are plans afoot for another trip as soon as possible!
Nothing compares to the visual explosion of walking through the markets of Jaipur. The joy of colour is at the heart of what I do and these collections bring together exceptional comfort and softness with a festival of brilliant colour.
Hand block printing is an ancient handicraft developed and perfected in Rajasthan over centuries. The pattern of each fabric is individually printed using hand carved wooden blocks that are applied to the fabric by expert hands. No two pieces are quite the same and each contains its own special signature of imperfections, enriching the beauty of these unique fabrics.
