Details

These quilts have been hand sewn by the women artisans of Rajasthan. Kantha refers to the technique of stitching various pieces of cloths together in different patterns. These are also called ‘running stitches’ or ‘tanka’ embroidery. They give this quilt its unique texture and look. In general, cloth pieces of light and dark shades of same color are sewed together. At other times contrast colors are also used. These Quilts are also known as “Gudris”. The story behind them goes like this: Many years ago, when the availability of fabric was not in abundance, even the clothes which were worn out were used as fillers between two layers of fabric and sewed sturdily with ‘tanka’ stitches. At other times, various pieces were sewed together and used as mats, quilts, covers etc. In present day, these ‘gudris’ are made in various color combinations and sizes. Many a times they can also be used as bedcovers also.
