Who: Founded by sisters Hopie and Lily Stockman (both Harvard grads, for the record), Block Shop is a textile company based in Los Angeles and Bagru, India. The Stockman sisters work directly with a cooperative of 20 master printers in Bagru to bring their block-printed textiles to life by hand, one piece at a time, the way it’s been done there for 350 years.  What: The sisters will be selling their latest signature oversize winter scarves, hand block printed with natural dyes and inspired by the geometric motifs and majestic architecture of Jaipur, their home away from home. Insider Scoop: In addition to their current collection, Block Shop will be selling a limited-edition run of their favorite classics, available exclusively for the Remodelista markets. Block Shop will be at the Remodelista LA Market  (this Saturday, December 6) and SF Market (December 13). Above: Lily and Hopie Stockman in front of their block-printed textiles.
