Ajrakh woodblock resist printed and kantha hand quilted Indigo Moth Throw

Ajrakh woodblock resist printed and kantha hand quilted Indigo Moth Throw

£320.00Price

My original Moths in Blossom design, woodblock printed using the age old Ajrakh resist technique, where the outlines have been hand printed with a lime paste, allowed to dry in the sun and then the background was printed with a clay mixture and scattered with dried cow dung.

The next day the fabrics were soaked in natural Indigo, resulting in a three colour design.

This double sided Kantha quilt was a labour of love.  I have hand quilted the pure cotton layers with an Oyster coloured embroidery thread, following the intricately woodblock printed design which then contrasts with the lovely underside in a fat stripe.

There is no machine stitching on the throw at all. The hem is slip stitched all around and then Kantha top stitched in a blue-grey embroidery thread.

A collaboration of my pattern design, handed to traditional craftsmen in Rajasthan to print and then passed back to me to sew by hand. An absolutely unique heirloom quilt.

Perfect as a cosy light summer throw; a bed topper over your duvet, a picnic blanket or travel bedding, it includes a strong unbleached cotton Caï Fahrel carry bag. 

 

You can give a cool delicate machine wash, hang or tumble dry if you like.

The throw measures 120cm x 220cm

100% Cotton
