Hand crafted by our women artisans in rural Vietnam and Cambodia, this baby quilt features mama, papa and baby elephants.
The quilt is made with 100% cotton fabric and features one of our favorite animals, the elephant. The grey elephants are appliqué onto a red tonal patchwork background and framed with a thin and elegant 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 Quilts is a gift that gives twice. This quilt is also made in Rumdoul, Cambodia. Because of poverty, 80% households send one adult for 4-6 months to Phnom Penh or other provinces for work. The quilters earn good income at home, close to their children.
