Indigo tiles

An entirely handmade wedding invitation suite under a Mediterranean theme, hand printed with a vivacious geometric pattern inspired by traditional zillij, the living craft of hand-cut glazed mosaic tile developed in Andalusia in the twelfth century and used historically by patrons of the art to decorate the home as a statement of the sophistication of its inhabitants.

Each piece of the suite is printed individually by hand with hand-carved lino blocks and a bright indigo blue ink and handwritten in calligraphy with a dip pen and a metal nib in a traditional Copperplate inspired script.
