Nalla Quilted Bedspread
The most dreamy quilted bedspread made from airy handwoven, naturally dyed cotton. The hues of deep natural indigo and ratanjotti are soothing to the eye. Contrasting fabrics have been carefully patchwoked together to create a balanced composition that will transform any bedroom into a calm and contemporary space.
The fabrics have been carefully dyed and handwoven in South India by highly skilled artisans. The bedspread is pieced and box quilted in our own tailoring unit.
Naturally Dyed Handwoven Cotton
Pure cotton cloth made directly from raw cotton. The process involves using small-scale yarn-making units that have been designed to make yarn specifically for handlooms. The yarn is dyed naturally using plant-based dyestuffs, then hand woven into cloth. The lack of heavy and intense industrial processing results in a wonderfully textured fabric that is soft, absorbent and drapes beautifully.
Handwoven fabrics are soft, durable and breathable – many of these properties are due to the human handling of the yarn during the weaving process. Looms are operated and powered by hand or foot, so no electricity is required to make the cloth, resulting in the process being ecologically sound.
This ancient technique involves obtaining pigment or dye from plants, insects or minerals. The majority of natural dyes come from roots, flowers, berries, seeds, nuts, leaves, and bark. We are drawn to natural dyes because they can produce far richer, more complex shades than synthetic dyes. Colours tend to have great depth and are very soothing to the eye.
