This dreamy, soft cloud of a quilt is entirely handmade. The filling is of pure breathable cotton, carefully placed between two layers of fine cotton textile and hand-quilted with the light but the strong running stitch by women from Amber, near Jaipur. The women who have hand-stitched this piece work from home.
The Universal quilt is an imaginative piece that has been made to be cherished for a long time.
Nila’s journey can be traced to its meaning in Hindi: blue. It refers to the art of creating the ancient, plant-based indigo dye. The word stems from the Greek Indikon, meaning ‘from India’.
The Nila Collection explores natural indigo - incorporating the ancient, mysterious dye into handmade weaves, prints, and embroideries while honoring the simplicity of its dip-dyed shades.
