Hand crafted by our women artisans in rural Vietnam and Cambodia.
The quilt is made of 100% cotton and is composed of numerous Kimono shirts which are applicated on the quilt. The backing is simply one fabric in a complementary colour in 100% cotton. Between the hand-stitched layers is a filling of polyester batting for warmth and comfort. The layers are hand-stitched together in intricate stitching patterns to prevent shifting and to keep the layers secure for the long life of the cushion.
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 wash.
Typically a double bed quilt takes about 4 weeks of precise and careful hand work. Mekong Quilts is proud to provide sustainable and rewarding employment to about 100 women who have roughly doubled their income, allowing them to stay close to their children.
