Slow fashion for the home! One of a kind patchwork throw cut and sewn in my Oakland studio with 100% handwoven cotton, front and back.
Quilt top is made of vintage textiles from West Africa.
The back is unbleached organic cotton, hand spun and handwoven khadi.
Made with a vintage textiles from Burkina Faso & Mali, West Africa. These beautiful fabrics were handwoven in small strips that were then sewn together to create a sarong like cloth before being dyed. The whole process took weeks, even longer when you consider that they often grew the cotton and indigo! Imperfections, distress patterns, small holes or stains are common features of this beautiful and storied fabric.
