Indian Kantha Large Double Sized Quilt 'Monkey Puzzle'
Pickup available at MARGATE
Usually ready in 24 hours
Authentic block printed Indian large double sized quilt. Meticulously constructed, each block was individually hand printed with an outstanding amount of time. It is an ancient technique mastered throughout the generations. Every block is different from the next, making each one as unique as the artisans who made them.
Aiding to keep the cultural crafting technique alive, we collaborate with our team of talented artisans in Jaipur to create exclusive, contemporary designs.
Pair with our matching Kantha pillow cases for a full set.
This quilt is large enough to cover both queen and double sized beds. Each quilt is reversible and comes packaged in its own block printed drawstring bag. These quilts are cool to sleep beneath in summer months, provide additional warmth in the winter, and make perfect throws for sofas.
This Monkey Puzzle design has an extra-special place in our hearts. Co-founder Amy expresses her adoration for these (sadly) endangered trees by planting one in her garden. The gorgeous tree is Amy's childhood favourite. She was raised in the outskirts of London in what she describes had a "magical, enchanted monkey puzzle forest." It became the first Latin translation of a tree she ever learned too! (Araucaria araucana)
Amy designed the pattern and included the tiger and bee motifs. This is an artful tribute to endangered nature, something Amy and the team care about immensely.
