Pula is a Setswana word from southern Africa meaning rain. We think this quilt pattern looks like lovely big raindrops. This handblock printed patten means every Pula Quilt is slightly different, like rainfall on different parts of the countryside.
One of the oldest forms of textile design going back thousands of years to the Indus Valley civilisation, hand-block printing is found throughout India and renowned in Jaipur, Rajasthan. First, a motif is carved into a hardwood such as Sheesham (Indian Rosewood) to create a design in relief. The woodblock is dipped in dye and stamped by hand onto fabric. Each colour within a design or motif represents a separate woodblock and reveals the printer’s skill, practised eye and a steady hand. Woodblocks are themselves often works of art and a testimony to the skill of the carver.
This lovely soft green is an azo-free, non-toxic dye. These dyes adhere to international standards (REACH) for more eco-friendly printing methods and are significantly better for you and the environment than conventional dyes. They produce less chemical and gray water run-off and do not contain toxic compounds, known carcinogens or heavy metals.

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.
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.
