BOOM CRAFT STUDIO 


Founded and run by 

Linda Zetterman & Sara Carlsson

Boom craft studio works with a completely artisanal production of textiles both in their studio in Stockholm, Sweden and in collaboration with artisans in Kutch, India. Together we make limited series of the most beautiful hand crafted textiles. Deep knowledge and craft traditions are closely related to our textiles and design language. The use of locally sourced sustainable organic natural fibers and pigments is part of the vision. As well as reuse already existing textile materials and work for social ethical awareness and full transparency. The production chain takes place without any intermediaries. The studio offers workshops in natural dyeing for both professionals and students. The studio also integrates with art projects that aims to create a link in between craftsmanship, knowledge and sustainability. 


The website will be launched in 2023.

WORKSHOPS

and several resist methods such as clay resist and different shibori.We exclusively

BLOCKPRINTED

KIMONO´S 




Hand block printed kimono dyed with natural indigo. (Also available in grey-brown colored with tannins & iron).


Price 1,000 SEK ex. shipping. Send DM for enquiry.


The fabric is made of organic cotton and has been block-printed with clay resist and overdyed with natural indigo. Each kimono is unique in its expression and printed in collaboration with Juned Khatri @ajrakh.art in Ajrakhpur, Kutch, India. The region is known for its diverse and rich craft heritage. The name Khatri means “He who fills the surface with colour”.


Block printing gives a natural variation on the surface and plant dyes give vivid shades that change over time.


The kimono is cut and sewn by Babu Bhai in the village of Dhori in the same region. The sewing machine has a central place in the home and Babu have like many craftsmen in India, inherited the tailoring profession from his father. 


Boom craft studio work exclusively with natural dyeing methods, organic yarns and fabrics. We believe in long-term relationships, crafting and transparency. It is good for both people and the environment!

MASTER HAND 

BLOCKPRINTER

The village Ajrakhpur in India is home for 170 families. Ajrakh´s pattern design tradition originates from 

the Indus Valley and extends more than 4000 years back in time. The designs are complexly constructed 

with complex and detailed geometric patterns and have traditionally been dyed with natural pigments. 

The Khatri families plays an important role in the preservation and knowledge of original hand block 

printing and the use of natural pigments such as indigo and madder root. The name Khatri means 'The 

one who fills the surface with color'. Pictured is Juned Khatri outside his printing workshop.
