Ajrakh woodblock resist printed and kantha hand quilted Indigo Moth Throw
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 & tumble dry if you like or hang dry.
The throw measures 120cm x 220cm
