hand printed cotton quilts

on August 02, 2017

these indigo quilts from india are made with the softest of cotton with a cotton fill and dyes using shibori techniques of binding and clamping to resist dyes and then they are hand stitched together.

the areas around jaipur are famous for intricate block printing techniques. these photos  are from a village called bagru that is famous for traditional techniques. intricate wooden blocks are hand carved and printers carefully apply colour using muscle memory, eye/hand co-ordination, years of practise and careful attention.

these block-printed quilts were made especially for planet with colours and blocks patterns and sizes that work on australian beds. they are amazingly warm, affordable and we think beautiful too
