Auroville Quilt

Auroville Quilt

  • Improvisationally pieced and patchworked together, the colours on this quilt are reminiscent of the wild landscapes of Auroville in southern India. This quilt re-imagines the red laterite earth of the land as embracing the green of the forest around and places the colours in a grid-like format that is characterstic of my work. At the center of this quilt is a golden-yellow patch that draws the eye inwards, a symbolic nod to the energy of this peaceful town. This is surrounded briefly by patches of greens in varying shades, ultimately culminating in gorgeous reds and browns. Narrow bands of colour are interspersed to add elements of surprise to the viewer. 


    This quilt is designed wholly from pre-consumer surplus fabrics and remnant textiles collected locally from design studios and export firms in Chennai, India. The fabrics used are cotton, silk and natural-fiber blends.


    Hand-pieced / Long-arm quilted / Cotton and silk fabric; poly-wadding.


    Size: 25"W x 33" H (63.5 x 83.82 cms)


    Colours may slightly vary from those shown in the images. Any slight pattern abnormality is a mark of craftsmanship and is not a defect.

  • Each product is made by hand, using ethically sourced, pre-consumer textiles that are discarded by the local industry here in Chennai. We employ patchwork, appliqué, embroidery and machine- and hand-quilting techniques across our product range.

    We produce small-batch collections, which means that each design is carefully thought-through and only one piece exists in it (unless otherwise mentioned).
