About
ABOUT accacia

Our accacia collection is designed jointly by the
Chandni Chowk (Devon based) and Anokhi (India based) design and production teams. We created the accacia label 23 years ago as a means of expressing this exciting joint venture to our customers.

accacia prints are made under fair trade conditions in India using the ancient method of Wooden Block Printing by hand. Block Printing is very much part of India’s rich textile history where it continues to be used for textile production despite competition from mechanised printing techniques. Giving regular work to the skilled Block Printers and Block Makers ensures that their ancient trades continue, and provides work for many people compared to the less labour intensive mass production methods. Many layers of work from direct printing, resist printing, discharging, dyeing and washing can be required for a piece of fabric to be completed. On average a printer would need to make about 300 impressions to produce one meter of cloth with five colours in the design. The end result however is a beautiful and unique piece of fabric, carrying a little of the printer’s skill, creativity and culture.
