Waste Not, Want Not Quilts
A tradition from the past, giving work to women and a new life to cloth leftovers in the present to create heirlooms to take into your future.
All quilts are based on khadi and hand weaves. Some have plain backs, some really follow the idea of using up leftovers and have printed backs.
The tops are all handwork, we have a file of ideas, pack a bag of colours and hand it over to the Stitching Ladies and let them work with it.
