Details

Designed by Shashi Sehgal, these lovely pillow shams tell a story of ancient life in India. Herders guided their flocks to graze in lush grasslands bordering the Thar Desert. For coverlets, the women created quilts of layered fabric, stitched by hand in a technique known as gudri-making or hand quilting. These quilted pillow shams are created in the same way of cotton voile.

The motifs are created with block prints, applied by hand in blue on ivory. Neat rows of flowers represent the unbroken lineage of tradition handed down over generations. Finished with piping, the edges are scalloped and the stitching is done by hand.

A zipper at the bottom of the shams opens them to insert the cushions.

Andrew

My girl was over in India so I bought 'Geraniums' for her, sent it to her all nicely wrapped up! She loved the gift wrapping almost as much as the top. She looks really beautiful in it, it was like something you got for waaay more in a department store, and she said the fabric was really high quality! Thank you very much
