What is Block Printing?
The amazing, ancient art of block printing comes from India and has been practiced for thousands of years. However, with the rise of machinery and technology, the ancient tradition of block printing art was starting to dwindle.
However, we couldn’t think of a better way to support our talented team of artisans in India. Then to incorporate their art into our new collection. The patterns are handmade and are absolutely beautiful.
The technique uses hand-carved wooden blocks to print intricate designs on the fabric. The process is very labor intensive and takes a lot of time to perfect the patterns in the wood. The blocks are created in different sizes, depending on the length of the fabric and the complexity of the design.
Once the blocks are carved, they are dipped in all natural dyes. Either made from vegetables or mud, and stamped onto the fabric. The process is continued multiple times. Each block is carefully placed to ensure the patterns are aligned to create a seamless pattern.
There are a wide range of patterns that can be created by block printing. One of the most used style of block printing is called “Ajrakh” which originated in the region of Gujarat. This style uses a beautiful deep blue color and intricate patterns.
Not only is block printing a beautiful, ancient art form, but it is an important piece of India’s cultural heritage. By supporting block printing artisans, we are helping to preserve the art and helping local economies.
Living for All-Natural Dyes
Have you ever thought about what your turquoise shirt or bright pink skirt was dyed with? We see these bright colors for spring and summer, and put them right on. However, a lot of these vibrantly colored textiles are created with harmful dyes and chemicals.
Instead of layering chemicals and toxins on your skin, we recommend wearing all naturally dyed fabrics. There are many pros to wearing all natural dyes instead of synthetically dyed clothing such as:
- Environmentally Safe – All natural dyes are made from plants or vegetables. Which are biodegradable, and do not harm the environment during the production process. In comparison, synthetic dyes often are made by petrochemicals and when leaked into the environment, can be harmful.
- Sustainable – When you support naturally dyed fabrics, it also promotes sustainable farming practices and the use of renewable resources. Natural dyes, additionally, can be used to repurpose discarded plant matter into useful products.
- Healthy – Natural dyes are generally considered safe for skin and are unlikely to cause allergic reactions to sensitive skin. Some natural dyes have even been found to have properties that are healing medicinally.
- Less water used – In contrast to synthetic dying methods, natural dyeing uses less water. An invaluable resource we need to protect. The process of extracting natural dyes is performed in a variety of different ways. That don’t require large amounts of water.
- Biodegradable – The waste produced during the process of natural dyeing is safely disposed of and biodegradable. So it won’t harm the surrounding environment. On the other hand, synthetic dyeing releases toxic waste that is difficult to dispose of safely.
We would never pour chemicals, bleaches, or toxins on our bodies. So why do we allow them to be in our clothes?
Many people are harmed by these dyes and chemicals, whether that be by an autoimmune disease or allergic reactions. Unfortunately, companies continue to use synthetic fabrics due to the cheap production costs and the mass quantity. However, they do not care about the effects it has on you.
We never would think that our clothes could potentially be making us sick. Harming our skin, but that is the reality of fast fashion. By supporting all organic cotton and natural dyes, you’re helping your health, the environment and supporting ethically sourced products.
We’re Breaking Up with Synthetic Fabrics and Dyes
Fashion, once known for its creativity and artistry, has gradually become a source of toxicity in today's society. The detrimental effects of pollution in the fashion industry have caused severe damage to our ecosystems and environment. From the rise of fast fashion to the use of harmful chemicals and the disposal of massive amounts of textile waste. The fashion industry's impact is undeniable.
Fast fashion, characterized by its rapid production and consumption cycles, has contributed significantly to the toxicity of the fashion industry. This business model thrives on quick turnover and low prices, enticing consumers to constantly purchase new clothing items.
However, behind the allure of affordable and trendy garments lies a dark reality. Fast fashion relies on the exploitation of cheap labor and unethical working conditions in developing countries.
Where workers are often subjected to long hours, low wages, and hazardous environments.
Moreover, the production processes involved in fashion contribute to the release of toxic chemicals and pollutants. The textile industry is one of the largest water consumers and polluters globally, accounting for significant water contamination. Many textile manufacturing processes involve the use of chemicals such as dyes, bleaches, and finishing agents. Which are often released into water bodies untreated, leading to the pollution of rivers, lakes, and oceans.
These pollutants harm aquatic life and disrupt fragile ecosystems, threatening the biodiversity of our planet.
Additionally, the fashion industry is a major contributor to air pollution. Factories emitting toxic gasses and particulate matter during the production of textiles and clothing release harmful substances into the atmosphere. These pollutants include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides. Directly contributing to air pollution and having adverse effects on both human health and the environment.
They contribute to the formation of smog, respiratory problems, and the exacerbation of climate change.
Furthermore, the disposal of fashion waste poses a significant environmental challenge. Textile waste often ends up in landfills. Where it decomposes slowly and releases greenhouse gasses like methane, a potent contributor to climate change.
Synthetic materials, such as polyester and nylon, commonly used in fast fashion, take hundreds of years to break down. As a result, landfills become clogged with textile waste, further exacerbating the environmental impact.
The detrimental devastation caused by the fashion industry's toxicity extends beyond the immediate environmental consequences. It also affects the health and well-being of those living in proximity to textile manufacturing centers. Communities near these facilities are exposed to higher levels of pollution, leading to respiratory issues, skin problems, and other health concerns. These communities, often marginalized and economically disadvantaged, bear the brunt of the fashion industry's harmful practices.
However, there is a growing awareness and movement towards sustainable and ethical fashion practices. Many fashion brands and designers are adopting eco-friendly materials. Implementing cleaner production methods, and ensuring fair treatment of workers throughout the supply chain. Consumers, too, are becoming more conscious of their fashion choices, opting for sustainable brands, thrifting, and embracing slow fashion principles.
The toxicity of fashion today, particularly in the context of pollution and fast fashion. Has resulted in severe consequences for our ecosystems and environment. From the exploitation of workers to the release of harmful chemicals and the accumulation of textile waste. The fashion industry's negative impact is widespread.
Addressing these issues requires a collective effort from industry stakeholders, policymakers, and consumers to promote sustainable and ethical fashion practices. Only through systemic change and conscious choices can we mitigate the toxicity of fashion. In hopes to safeguard the well-being of our planet and future generations.

How maintain your long lasting sustainable natural fiber garments — learn how to take care of your products, while extending their lifecycle and vibrant colors.
— When it comes to washing your garment, you will want to wash on the “delicate” setting in cold water. Once complete, hang or lay your garment in the shade to dry.

BeachCandy Swimwear Care Instructions
BeachCandy swim is carefully handcrafted locally in Los Angeles, made to last season after season when cared for properly.
Start by filling a basin with enough water to cover your swimwear. Soak your swimsuit with a capful of swimwear cleanser and repeat this hand wash process after each use and only in cool water.
Work the suds into and through the suit to clean all areas. We recommend soaking the swimsuit for 20-30 minutes until it does not smell like chlorine or the beach any longer. Hang it to dry naturally in a shady cool place.
Do not wring, wrap in a towel, or put in a plastic bag when wet. Chlorine and chemical exposure may increase the chances of damaging your suit. Rough surfaces, and/or heat may also shorten the life of your swimsuit fabric and Swarovski candy. We also recommend that you don’t accidentally toss your BeachCandy in a washing machine, dryer, or spot clean with harsh chemicals.
