have love, must travel

A capsule collection featuring sophisticated boho pieces, Have Love, Must Travel is hand blocking magic. Made in an ethical factory in India, their line is produced with hand carved block prints with a printing method passed down generation after generation in the East. Beautiful is an understatement - these designs are so well executed they bring fabric printing to a whole new level. The Spring/Summer 2016 line includes three gorgeous tops and a romper. The off-the-shoulder trend is alive and well in the collection - a favorite! Click below to learn more about their intense process and see all the loveliness it produces ... 

To create the gorgeous patterns you see here, they must carve them into wooden blocks by hand. Each color needs its own block. The fabric is then fixed to a long tabletop, and the blocks are dipped into dye. If using multiple colors, each block will need its own layer. Patience & a steady hand are much needed in this process! The rare 'irregularities' are something special to find within your piece. It shows the true human aspect of creating and truly makes the piece unique. I love knowing who made my clothing, and appreciate all the work which goes into producing a shirt I can wear for years and years.

The Tribal Block Printed Off the Shoulder Top is stunning, to say the least. It is comfortable with the elastic edge, and the brass beading adds a lovely touch - like jewelry for your clothing. It's a piece I can treasure forever. Winter can stay away so I can let my hair down and shoulders out for the entire year ;) Have Love, Must Travel clothing is more than just a garment, it is a piece of art - See the rest of the collection below. 

Another elastic off-the-shoulder top, the dash print is a more subtle version of the tribal block pattern. You can find the same print in romper form. Who doesn't love a good romper? They are SO comfortable. For a little bit of peek-a-boo, the Cold Shoulder Cami has a beautiful flutter sleeve. This one is perfect with a straw hat!
