Paperflower Quilt


Paperflower Quilt

  • In intense shades of deep pink, this quilt borrows it's colour palette from inflorescences of wild bougainvillea that dot the roads in India in the summertime. Although shades of pink are common to the Bougainvillea plant, you will also find orange, yellow, and white varieties. However you may find them growing wild, they are a sight to see. Radiating outwards from a deep redish-magentalight to a summery pink that floats at the edge of the piece, this quilt is an abstract expression of this gorgeous plant, colloquially called Paperflower, after the papery nature of it's petals.

    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: 37" W x 34" H (93.98 x 86.3 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).
