Hand crafted by our women artisans in rural Vietnam and Cambodia, this baby quilt features all the modes of transport to carry your child away to a peaceful nights sleep.
The quilt is made with 100% cotton fabric and features various modes of transport such as planes, boats, fire trucks and tractors. The colourful appliqués are hand-stitched onto a plain background with a vibrant patchwork frame and a contrast border. The backing is simply one fabric in a complementary colour. Between the two cotton layers is a filling of polyester batting for warmth and comfort. The three layers are then hand-quilted together in an intricate stitching pattern to prevent shifting and to keep the layers secure for the long life of the quilt.
Our quilts are of the highest quality and easy to look after. Simply machine wash with cold water on a delicate setting with mild laundry detergent, then lay out flat to dry in the shade. It will become softer and cozier with every washing. Measuring: 120x100cm and weighing only 800gr, this quilt is a perfect light-weight, colourful addition to any child’s room.
Every item purchased from Mekong+ and Mekong Quilts is a gift that gives twice. It takes a full week to make, all handmade. The quilters have thus a sustainable employment and have roughly doubled their income.
