Baby dohars make the ultimate swaddle, nursing and stroller cover, tummy time sheet or luxe accessory for your mini jet setter.
In Hindi, doharana means “repeating” and dohar implies “layered.” Made of three sheets of mulmul, an airy cotton muslin once exclusive to Indian royalty, dohar blankets are traditional summer blankets that get softer with every wash.
Dohars are made according to centuries-old block printing methods. Artisans carve an intricate pattern into a block of wood. The block is then dipped into natural, azo-free dye and pressed into the fabric 500 to 3,000 times in a slow, rhythmic process. Produced in limited quantities, dohars bear the mark of the artist. Each blanket is one-of-a-kind, and there are subtle differences even among those of the same design.
