We at Lavendel Wien love Indian design, especially block printing, and this is the basis of our design aesthetic—simplified Indian shapes with European colours. Our focus is on bed and bath. All designs are exclusive to Lavendel Wien. The 100% cotton fabrics used in our bedding are produced in India, hand printed with wooden blocks and then sewn into bed sheets and lightweight “dohar” blankets there pursuant to our design. Each block print is a classic Indian form, but the colours we use look “right” in Europe as they are subtle and calming. The geometric spacing of the printing is elegantly understated, so that the bedding suits both modern and traditional interiors. Our beautiful and legendary lightweight summer blankets (dohars) consist of three layers of fine and translucent pure cotton muslin that feel like silk and are bound by a muslin band. The middle layer is first printed with a blocked design; the layers of muslin in front and in back of the design allow the design to peek through in an especially alluring way on both sides. The dohar colours and designs coordinate perfectly with our bed sheets and pillow covers, made of 100% cotton percale, and work just as well under a warm blanket in winter. We have embroidered our 100% cotton waffle pique towels, produced in Austria, with motifs derived from classical Indian wood blocks and finished in Vienna with colours from the collection.

Fantastic quality cotton, beautiful colours, timeless design.
My first designs were clothes--my mother sewed all of my clothes until I married and I designed them.
