We are very thankful to bring you this amazing collection of unique quilts, each hand-stitched by the Stitching Ladies of The Stitching Project as well as numbered, catalogued and hand-signed. These quilts are part of our Waste Not Want Not collaboration project with The Stitching Project using off-cuts from our clothing collections, giving them new purpose and creating employment for the team of the Project, especially during this challenging times.
All quilts are therefore made from different weight khadi (hand-spun and handwoven cotton) and light dhoti (very light cotton) to LH, medium weight and KK20, medium/heavyweight cotton hand-weave. We have also used some of our luxurious slow machine woven silk cotton to offer you some unique throws.
Most are reversible with unique hand-stitch work on either side showing the Ladies’ craftsmanship skills and their creativity as the Ladies are originally given a bag coloured strips and a file of ideas but ultimately responsible for their final designs.
Our quilts will become family heirlooms to be treasured by generations to come.
