The Ripple Quilt is intricately hand-stitched, with each one taking two weeks to complete. These quilts are crafted by women from a small village in Uttarakhand, the lower Himalayas of north India, providing them with a welcome extra income. So much love and care has gone into each and every quilt, the women are eager to hear if you like their work, so please do let us know!
The rich taupe colour of this quilt comes from the plant and mineral dyes of pomegranate, madder root and iron earth. 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.
