Hand crafted by our women artisans in rural Vietnam and Cambodia, this quilt features a beautiful cotton patchwork design.
The quilt features a mix of plain and patterned patchwork pieces in cotton, all in tonal colours. Each panel has been pieced together by hand and an intricate and repeated flower motif is hand-stitched on top. 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.
