The Quilt Makers of Gujarat
We’re extremely fortunate to have discovered Raimal, his wife and daughter, master quilt makers, from Gujarat.
They’ve been making quilts most of their adult lives, and their expert skills at piecing, layering and kantha stitching by hand are faultless. Their tiny stitches are close together in neat rows, which sets them apart from many cheaper kantha stitched pieces on the market. Using one long thread to stitch through the layers of fabrics and wadding ensures that no knots are present on the surface of their quilts.
Such perfect stitching also gives our quilt surfaces a lovely texture.
Our quiltmakers are currently training another group of artisans in Kutch to make quilts for us to his exacting standards. This ensures that our lead times remain manageable and realistic, and allows us to take on more orders.
