Quilts are a popular form of folk art. The seamstress was making a bed cover for her family. If she was adept with her needle, there may have been detailed embroidery done on the piece or appliqué work depicting scenes from the area. Some of the quilts were made for special occasions such as the wedding quilt.
At Weathered Nest we hand select all our quilts. Our Kantha handmade quilts, throw pillows and scarves are hand stitched using the oldest form of quilting from vintage cotton Indian sarees, each piece is a true work of art. No two quilts are alike and each side has a different unique pattern. These handmade quilts and throw pillows can make a plain sofa or bed extraordinary and the scarves make every outfit unique.
