They come with a care tag – they are washable, and can be worn all year round. They are large enough to wear as a cover up / dress in the summer, and soft enough to be snuggly warm in the winter.

    Very pleased with my bespoke scarves. I was able to pick the scarf and print colours for an individual look. One was a present which was well packaged and presented. It was great to pick the printing block’s too. Great value and a lovely owner.

    I just had to share with you the excellence of Karen’s work.   After receiving a collection of commission block printed shawls I was over the moon.   The shawls are so sheer and soft and the colours just beautiful.   Karen has an eye for colour and the inks used complement the designs.   The shawls are a good size, big enough to wrap around and use as a beach coverup.   Such a shame I had to give these away as gifts.   Saving up now for some for me!

    I’ve purchased a number of shawls from Karen, many which have been commissions in an array of colours and designs. In fact most of the shawls I wear regularly are a Karen creation! I wear them as a scarf but they are quite large so very versatile. Beautiful, luxurious, soft fabric against the skin. Love how each shawl is completely unique. I have had a design in mind and Karen has delivered every time! There was one piece which was exceptional and this was an ocean themed mermaid and Venus printed scarf with whales and other sea creatures. Soft baby blue fabric with gorgeous prints which were later hand painted with fabric paint and glitter by Karen. Absolutely stunning and have had so many compliments. I would highly recommend Karen Dots and Blocks. Looking forward to putting in my next order! Thank you Karen 💗 xxx

    I was lucky enough to have one of Karen’s amazing shawls / scarves designed for me, in a beautiful purple with gold elephants perfect for me and so beautifully crafted. I love all of Karen’s products they are made with such care and thought.

    I asked Karen to make me a special scarf for Christmas and she not only fulfilled my expectations but surpassed them. The design is stunning and has stayed on no matter how much wear or washing it’s been through. It is soft and size wise it’s very comfortable as a scarf and can be worn as a sarong too. It is fantastic and I would definitely recommend if you have a design in mind Karen can do it for you.

    I now have several printed scarves from dots and blocks, all different., all unique and all much admired by friends and acquaintances. They are all amazed by what good value they are and how unique and attractive. I think my favourite is the navy one printed with the lime green tree of life motif. It goes with so many things and is my favourite motif.

    I also have several of your  bags that are again so individual and well made, they wash well and hold a lot. Hard to chose my favourite, they are all so gorgeous.

    I have just received my latest order of three shawls, oh my they are absolutely stunning. I’m apologising to those people that were going to gets these as gifts, as I’m keeping them myself, I can’t possibly give them away.

    I own two of Karen’s beautiful shawls, which I purchased at a lovely Witches Market. Karen was extremely helpful in helping me to find the right shawls for me and allowed me lots of time to make my choices, which I really appreciated. At no point did I feel at all rushed and taking my time actually meant that I got to know Karen, the creator of these beautiful scarves, which was lovely, hearing about how they are made and the lovely blocks used to create the designs and patterns. For me, getting to know the craftsperson is as important as what I’m purchasing, as after all, it is their energy within the creations. The scarves are truly gorgeous, beautifully soft and versatile and can be worn as a light weight shawl in the summer months, or, as I wear them, as a lovely warm, snuggly scarf to wear with jumpers during the winter. Karen offers bespoke designs especially for you too. I can’t praise Karen highly enough 💗🌸🌺💗

    Dots and Blocks have been supplying my busy gift shop on a National Trust World Heritage site for nearly 3 years. Karen is wonderful to deal with, nothing is ever too much trouble. Her shawls are one of our top sellers and customers feedback that they are a great size and very warm. The unique patterns that are used with the mixture of beautiful, bright colours makes the shawls really stand out. Customers love buying them as gifts – but equally for themselves! I would highly recommend Dots and Blocks artisan shawls – they are great value, brilliant colours and completely hand printed in Wiltshire.

    After lots of messages with me changing my mind over and over again Karen made me 3 beautiful shawls. A red one with root chakras on. An orange one with Sacral chakras in and a yellow one with solar plexus on it. I was over the moon with them. Can’t recommend Karen enough xx

  14. Chrissie Aplin

    I bought a printed scarf from Karen last Christmas as a present for my mum. It was so hard to choose one as there were so many lovely designs and beautiful colours to choose from – I ended up buying a bright pink one with bees on it. It is so soft and I love that it can be worn as either a scarf or a shawl. My mum was so pleased with it – they really do make an ideal present for someone else or for yourself!

    I bought a beautiful scarf/ shawl and wear it often. It’s so soft and easy to wear.
    Keeps you cosy on cooler days and is lovely to cover your shoulders in the sun.
    Beautiful quality and lovely to own something unique & handmade

  16. Tammy

    I came across Karen’s website and message her to make me two shawls including one as gift. After seeing the different patterns that she could make, I ended up getting four! I chose the main pattern and fabric colour then let Karen play with the design. They are all stunning and I didn’t want to send the one out as gift at all! Thank you Karen.
