Every slow textile created by artists at Art Nouveau incorporates some kind of innovative washing technique. Art Nouveau team always looks forward to make its textiles look earthier with a vintage wash. Different techniques depending on nature of fabric are used to enhance the weaving pattern of the textile.
The tradition of hand embroidery, appliqué, cutwork and running hand stitch at Art Nouveau runs it’s veins through small villages that are located in deserts of the Indian Borders. Art Nouveau supports about 350+ artists here by directly providing work at their home. Embroidery work crafted on our ensemble is much slower, but amazingly beautiful. It may take about 2-15 days on an average to finish hand application on one single garment. We are so proud and thankful to all the artists to stamp our slow fashion with their god gifted art!!
Shibori work for Art Nouveau is given shape through its collaboration with artist families who have been involved in this exquisite art for more than 50+ years. The second generation of shibori families are now an active regular force with us in producing niche shibori designs through our crafted slow textiles.
Art Nouveau works with a cluster of local traditional block print families to produce a variety of vegetable prints, batik prints & other historical block print techniques in its designed ensembles. The process is slow and supports families of at least 150+ artists located in our beautiful city of Jaipur.
