Thundu Little Quilt
With a non-repetitive grid pattern that plays with addition and subtraction, the graphic Thundu brings a modern touch to any living space. Hang it on the wall as art or use it as a baby blanket or play mat.
With its bold use of geometric forms, the quilt retains warmth and texture through the choice of materials. Constructed with the most lovely yarn-dyed natural indigo cotton and raw cotton that has been expertly handwoven. Each quilt is meticulously crafted in our own workshop in South India.
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.
