Our Bagru Rose Quilt marries a traditional technique with a modern motif. Rather than using a wood-block to print the traditional geometric pattern Bagru is known for, the women who make these quilts have recently started experimenting and are applying the clay in more free-form patterns. The clay is swirled on, then sawdust is sprinkled on to the clay while still wet to help the curing, drying process. The fabric is dipped into a plant dye then washed to remove the clay, revealing a reverse print pattern, similar to the batik method.
The beautiful soft taupe colour comes from the natural dye known as kashish made from the bark of the Arjuna tree. Using plants and minerals to dye fabric has been part of India’s history of textile design for thousands of years, however, the development of synthetic pigments in the last 150 years has made vegetable dyes almost obsolete. Today, only small pockets of artisans in India preserve this ancient craft of plant-based dye-making. The method is laborious and time-consuming but plant-dyed textiles offer such a beautiful colour palette of muted earthy tones.

How to use:
Lightly-padded, our quilts can be used alone over a sheet in mild weather, or with a duvet for extra warmth in winter. They also look stunning folded at the end of the bed, as a decorative comforter.
Wash separately with a minimal amount of natural soap or detergent. Gentle hand washing is preferred, or machine wash separately with cold water using a gentle cycle (for delicates). Air dry out of direct sunlight. Dry cleanable
As all our fabrics are made using traditional print-making techniques there can be subtle variations in colours and patterns. Imperfections are normal and are a reminder that the fabrics are made entirely by hand.
