August Fireside Chat : Block Shop Textiles

August Fireside Chat : Block Shop Textiles


Bossladies teamed up with our friend, photographer Marisa Vitale, to host an ongoing Fireside Chat series in Los Angeles. Each month we sit down with some of our favorite bossladies to chat about their entrepreneurial journeys and hear some of the wisdom they’ve gathered along the way. 

This August, we’re excited to welcome Hopie of Block Shop Textiles to the stage. (Her co-founder and sister, Lily, is currently on maternity leave with her adorable babe, Olympia.)

Block Shop Textiles is a socially conscious textile company that blends modern California style with traditional Indian block printing. Twice a year, Hopie and Lily travel to India, where they work closely with their team to produce a beautiful collection of scarves, quilts, table linens, and rugs.

Deeply connected to their community of printers, Block Shop Textiles invests five percent of annual profits into sustainable healthcare programs in Bagru. To date they've funded clean water initiatives, an eye-care clinic, and more than 250 primary care check-ups.

We'll discuss how Hopie approaches designing new products, the challenges and rewards of working with a team based in India, the next heath-based initiatives they hope to fund in Bagru, and what new projects they have up their sleeves for the year ahead.
