Indian Inspiration

It's no secret that I love India with it's vibrant colours and intricate patterns and design. The Indian influence is obvious in this beautiful bedroom with it's bone inlay bedside table and Indian quilt.

I was very excited to receive a shipment of Indian Kantha quilts this week. They are a lightweight cotton quilt, bedspread or throw in a range of gorgeous colours and designs. Each one is handmade by piecing vintage sari's together and then stitching all over by hand with a delicate running stitch called a Kantha stitch.



Team a Kantha quilt with one of our stunning bone inlay pieces to create your own little slice of Indian heaven.
