Travel enables us to join the dots, to discover the interconnectedness of everyone and everything. We travel to learn about our world and her people, and in doing so, we begin to discover who we are.

The textile art of woodblock printing is the process of printing patterns on textiles – usually on linen, cotton or silk – by means of incised wooden blocks. It is the earliest, simplest and slowest of all methods of textile printing. Block printing by hand is a labour-intensive process. It is, however, capable of yielding highly artistic results, some of which are unobtainable by any other method. Wanderlust Collectables stocks a beautiful range of hand stitched, block printed cotton quilts that are guaranteed to add texture, character and colour to your home. The colours come from vegetable dyes which give them a unique organic beauty. They have the ability to complement modern or classic homes and due to their very generous size, the quilts can be used in various ways.
