One of two astonishing Pakistani Ralli applique wedding quilts .Finely appliqued , stitched and decorated with sequins and embroidery .It is a stunning piece ,so much work and love went into making it . Traditionally these quilts were made as part of a wedding dowry from the brides family to the grooms .A whole village of ladies would have made this together ,laughing ,singing and telling stories to each other as they worked .They would lay out the fabrics ,one on top of the other and then add the applique taking a section each ...if you lookat it closely it really is extrodinary the skill and craftmanship that has gone into making it .

These are old quilts ,which have been used and one or two sequins are missing but the these two pieces I have are rare to find and are beautiful treasures to have in your home ,decoarting a room either on the bed ,sofa or indeed hung on the wall .

Dimensions : 250cm x170 cm
