This quilt was inspired by our planet's extraordinary natural diversity. Iyarkai means ‘nature’ in Tamil, one of the languages spoken in India.
From the sub-alpine pastures to the rainforests, and the deserts to the evergreen forests, our planet is truly diverse and sublime.
The vibrant colours of our Iyarkai quilt bring nature’s energy to your home. As they say, nature’s not a place to visit, it’s home.
This is a reversible, handblock printed quilt. It’s printed on both sides so can be used either way.
It contains a total of three layers: two layers of hand-printed, soft cotton fabric, and a middle layer of hand fluffed, natural cotton. Unlike traditional Kantha quilts, we’ve chosen to use fluffy, open cotton, which gives you the much-desired cosiness and warmth.
Our quilts are hand block printed by master artisans, then entirely hand quilted by dedicated and caring women. Months of hard work goes into making a high-quality quilt that adds character to your bedroom.
We create our products in small batches and do not mass produce them, so you become the proud owner of a quilt that’s been crafted with love and care.
