Machine quilted with a chevron pattern, the top fabric is hand-dyed in natural vegetable dyes while a soft Indian cotton voile is used for the backing. A thin cotton batting gives added warmth during the cooler months but the lightweight quilt makes a great accessory for all seasons. They have a multitude of uses – cot blanket, picnic blanket, tummy time, stroller blanket…the list is endless.
Dimensions: 106cm x 103cm
Care: Machine wash cold on a gentle cycle with mild detergent. Line dry in shade or tumble dry low. Do not soak. Warm iron if required. Natural vegetable dyes are used in Kalamkari fabrics, hence it is important to air the fabric regularly.
Our Kalamkari fabrics are sourced from a fair-trade artisan group in Andra Pradesh and involves seventeen painstaking steps from treating the cotton naturally, to carving the wooden blocks, to mixing the natural dyes, to drying and washing before the final fabric is ready for use. Approximately ten skilled artisans are involved in creating just one yard of fabric.
