Trousseau Blanket, Quilt with Hand Embroidery, Sofa Throw Bed Spread

Details

Truly a labor of love, this listing is for a clean, good condition, finely hand quilted using Kantha stitchery quilt throw or bed cover. Fully reversible sofa throw.

This is a finely quilted throw lovingly made years ago for a daughter's dowry trunk. Don't wait due to rarity of the find, I only have one to sell. Fully reversible.The bed used in pictures is a queen size bed with pillow top mattress.

MATERIAL: 100% pure cotton.
Exact Dimensions: 58 inches width x 84 inches length
Color :
First side - This quilt has extremely fine hand quilting. One side of the quilt has multicolored cross-stitch (needlework, hand embroidery) motifs on top of fine, hand quilting done on yellow saree. This side also has a peach color border.
Second side -Reverse side of the quilt or throw is made of multicolored roses print on blue background.

Weight of the quilt: ~3.3 lbs

Care : Gentle cycle, machine wash in cold water, hang dry OR dry clean. This will not shrink or bleed colors if care instructions are followed.

Process of Creation: several layers of vintage cotton sarees (Indian wrap around skirt) are hand quilted together using Kantha stitch. To make this marriage trousseau item more special than daily use kantha quilts, entire quilt was covered with hand embroidered motifs. This is truly a work of art. Perfect for all seasons but especially suited for use as lightweight blanket , picnic blanket , coverlet , bedspread and bed cover. This quilt is certainly beautiful enough to be used/framed as a tapestry.

Condition : Excellent, clean condition still minor imperfections such as patches from other colorful sarees, extra threads, evidence of wear, minor blemishes etc. may exist and is considered to add to charm of this sofa throw or quilt. No big blemishes.

Rest assured, item will be DOUBLE washed before being sent to you.

Please check out my other listings. I will be happy to combine shipping. This item is restored, washed and currently stored in a smokeless and pet less home.

~~~~~More fun information about the provenance of the item~~~~
It was a matter of great pride for the soon to be bride's mother to hand embroider and create trousseau items for her daughter's wedding. These items were lovingly created and blessed. Unlike mass produced quilts created in recent times, each one of the trousseau quilt was a masterpiece and work of art.

This kantha quilt was collected from an Indian village. Due to age, use and at times neglect, some of them had holes, stains and frayed edges. I did my best to restore it to its original state by repairing holes, using kantha hand quilting stitches. Big stains (if present) were also covered up with clean fabric patches using hand quilting.Then my daughter and I washed the smaller stains out and repaired the frayed edges, as much as possible. All of this repair and restoration work was done with my own hands using cotton threads, cotton fabric patches and needle.
