Sami quilt cushions

Code: SAMI15 & 16


W: 21" (53.3 cm)H: 19" (48.3 cm)


These two lovely cushions are made from a vintage Sami quilt from northern India. The quilt is constructed from multiple layers of cotton topped with an Ajrak block print. The layers are held together with tiny quilting stitches and the result is a soft and strong textile. These Sami quilts are very hard to find now and should not be confused with the ubiquitous kantha quilts made from recycled saris. The colour is a lovely raspberry with accents of lilac and off white.
The cushions are backed with an equally beautiful checked handwoven textile from East China. The weave is in blue and red pre dyed yarns which read as a sort of raspberry colour similar to the front.
Ther are zip fasteners and feather pads.
