Hand crafted by our women artisans in rural Vietnam and Cambodia, this baby quilt features an adorable Vietnamese school girl and boy wearing the traditional Vietnamese conical hat.
The quilt is made with 100% cotton fabric featuring cute and colourfully dressed Vietnamese schoolchildren along with the moon and stars appliqué and chain-stitched onto a plain background. The scene is set off with a vibrant patchwork frame and hand-stitched 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.
It takes about one week to make, all handmade. Quilters have now a sustainable employment and have doubled their income.
