Indigo Patchwork Quilt
This natural indigo patchwork quilt is made with handwoven cotton and is truly a labour of love. The cotton has been naturally dyed with real indigo, and hand woven by master artisans. Once woven, the fabric is then sent to our workshop where it is carefully cut, pieced, and quilted. The whole process takes several months.
Filled with a thick natural cotton wadding, the quilt has a nice weight to it.
Drape the quilt over the foot of a bed or on a sofa, it can even be used as a play mat on the floor for babies or toddlers.
An heirloom piece that you will want to pass down to future generations.

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.
