Hand crafted by our women artisans in rural Vietnam and Cambodia, this quilt features vintage ethnic minority embroidered panels from Sapa, Northern Vietnam. Such fabrics are becoming exceedingly rare and make every quilt absolutely unique.
The vintage panels are made of hand weaved hemp up in the northern mountains of Vietnam. Our artisans have pieced and hand-stitched each panel together to create a central and visually beautiful log cabin design. The quilt is bordered and backed with 100% cotton in a complementary color. Between the stitched layers is a filling of polyester batting for warmth and comfort. The layers are hand-stitched together in a straight 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 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 300 women who have roughly doubled their income, allowing them to stay close to their children.
