Sunday Monday products are thoughtfully designed in New York and hand crafted by family workshops in India.

Our Process

  1. Block Printing
  2. Weaving

Block Printing

01

Block Printing

First, we send our designs to our team in India and our patterns are carved into teak wood by hand by Raju, a master block carver, or his sons. Most of our designs require multiple blocks to be made.

02
Holes are drilled into the block to release air during the printing process in order to prevent bubbles. You can see one of three blocks used in our Fermata bandana.
03
For printing, the block is dipped into a tray of dye and stamped onto the fabric with an assertive thump of the fist.
04
Alignment of the design is determined by the practiced eye of our printers.
05
Indigo textiles are printed with dabu (mud paste), then sprinkled with a fine coating of sawdust so the textile does not stick to itself when dipped into the indigo vat.
06
Once the mud paste dries, the textiles are hand dipped in the indigo vat. For a deeper indigo look, textiles are dipped repeatedly.
07
After the right shade of indigo is achieved, textiles are washed vigorously by hand to remove all the dabu before hanging on a line to dry, like our Waves Indigo scarf above.

Weaving

01

Weaving

The haatho (wooden comb) is hand carved from hardwood and passed down in their family for generations.

02
The haatho is used to tighten the weave of the rug after each row is made. Big geometric patterns are more difficult to weave than repeat patterns and require eyeing the spacing just right.
03
Depending on the intricacy of the pattern, each rug takes 1-7 days to weave.
04
Our flat weave rugs are made by a different father-and-sons team. They have two pit looms they use, one on the roof of their home and one in the front yard.
05
Our Tic Tac Toe and Pataang flat weave rugs are woven with wool yarn hand dyed by our weavers.
