We love India!
Inspired by our first trip 30 years ago, a recent journey was an opportunity to source textiles embodying the spirit of India. Loving the colors and patterns of saris worn throughout India, we were naturally drawn to these gorgeous vintage sari quilts.
They are crafted by women in rural areas of India, using repurposed cotton saris.
Layers and sections of sari cloth are arranged artistically and hand sewn together with a uniform running stitch. The size and number of stitches define the look and feel of each piece. The cloth is soft and most quilts are lightweight. Each is unique.
Traditionally, quilts were made for use within the family. Now the craft is also a viable source of income offering some financial freedom and independence to the women who make them.
Enjoy as a quilt, blanket, throw or hang on the wall as textile art.
They are beautiful + even better in person. We hope you love them as much as we do.
