About Jenney Kelly

My passion is for the vibrancy and texture of textiles, and coupled with my extensive travels has allowed me access to a wonderful variety of fabrics that I have then block printed using hand made blocks sourced from around the World. Block printing brings an almost limitless scope for variety, colour and design and this I have undertaken printing both in the UK where I live, and also on several trips to Jaipur in India where I have been lucky enough to have access to the most amazing skills, techniques and ages-old workshops. My products focus on various styles of bags, scarves and some home linens, all made by hand.

Ruby Silk Velvet Block Printed Scarf

A truly unique silk velvet scarf, which has been hand block printed in a decorative floral print and double dyed to create this beautiful two tone ruby red design.

Dabu block printing is an ancient textile printing technique primarily practiced in Jaipur, it is a labour intensive task, using a mud resist and requires several steps in printing and dyeing to achieve this beautiful effect.
