Pretty in Print from Les Indiennes444 Warren Street

“Factory-made items for chain stores can be so perfect they lose their soul,” says Mary Bergtold Mulcahy, founder of Les Indiennes. Her vision of imperfect and airy hand- blocked textiles led her to partner with a craftsman from South India in 2002. The result is a line of unusual textiles using an ancient and complex printing method called kalamkari. As a visionary and the designer of its award-winning textiles, Mary welcomes the challenge of taking a humble craft that is almost extinct and repurposing it for a Western market. You can see the multi-cultural results online or at her new store in Hudson, where lower-priced products are available in her beautiful storefront on Warren Street.
