VERY OLD MAGNIFICENT LAYERED, HEAVY HAND-STICHED QUILT, RAJASTHAN INDIA
Exquisite vintage throw / throw / blanket hand-stitched with thousands of Kantha stitches made with layers of recycled old saris and textiles. In the Japanese BORO / WABI SABI aesthetic old, worn, patched, used domestic pieces are revered as age and time cannot be replicated. Every now and then I am able to find one of these and they are snapped up by textile lovers. This one is a beautiful soft combination of purples and blues with subtle colours revealed through fraying and wear but held together strongly with all the stitches.
Worn from years of necessity, time and use resulting in a unique and wonderful textile that could be used as a picnic rug / yoga blanket / sofa throw or on a bed or as many people do...hung on a wall as an art piece.
