Cotton Quilt Printed Coramandal Periwinkle -Quilted entirely by hand and fully reversible.

Treat yourself to the sumptuous softness of Fabindia's fine cotton voile quilts. 100% pure cotton, including the fill, quilted entirely by hand and fully reversible they are the perfect year-round weight. Skilled artisans carve the required design into hard wood to make the blocks, which are the essential tools for printing. These blocks are then sequentially dipped into dye bath and stamped onto the fabric with skilled precision. A separate block is used for each colour.

Coramandal quilts
The lush foliage of the Coramandal coast of South East India is the inspiration for this intricate hand blockprint cotton bedspread. Fabindia blockprints are versatile perennials, representing the best of traditional craftsmanship which will please you for years. Equally striking in a modern or traditional setting, this timeless, sophisticated design has the subtle signature marks of an authentic wood blockprint, testifying to its humble handcrafted roots. Each piece is washed before and after printing to ensure softness and purity.
The irresistibly soft cotton voile cover and pure cotton batting makes them both light and warm. The secret to our extra special softness and warmth is the carefully carded cotton batting and finely woven cotton cover. Hand embroidered running stitches cover the quilt and hold the cotton batting in place
