TAN WITH RED TICKING QUILT

Handwoven cotton, hand stitched, reversible and lightweight.
King single size
230 x 180 cm

After 25 years as a film designer, during which Sally made many trips to India collecting fabrics, she finally decided to produce her own collection. Her desire is to create beautiful handcrafted textiles and give them a contempary edge to suit modern environments. All her quilts, throws and cushions are either 'hand-dyed', 'hand-stiched', 'hand-woven' or 'hand block-printed'. Unlike machine-made products, they fade naturally and imperfections are part of their beauty and uniqueness.

Sally travels to many remote communities, working closely with the artisans. Different areas in India specialise in different crafts. She works with women who create exquisite applique work in the desert near Pakistan, natural dye block printers in Rajasthan, village weavers in Bengal and Hyderabad, and women who do intricate hand embroidery in Lucknow. Like other Western designers working in India, Sally is hoping to keep these ancient crafts alive as we compete with the manic rush to modernisation. Her textiles are carbon neutral and eco friendly. A percentage of the sale price goes back to the rural communities which make them.

Many thanks to Sally Campbell for donating one of her exquisite quilts to An Adventure of the Heart.
