This is the most stunning deep emerald colour ! I have collected these late 20th Century dowry vintage pakistani quilts over many the years.When a quilt is started the women of the house invite their neighbours to help and a group of them work together for a full day to layer the quilt (at least three layers) and sew in the tacking stitches so the family can then concentrate on their decorative embroidery.Three or four women will work on a quilt at the same time.Usually after they have finished their other work for the day ! It is an integral part of the culture in this part of the world (Sindh Valley Pakistan).The quilts are representative of the earth apparently, as they are used for items close to the ground ,ie beds ,cots,and rugs. Latterly synthetic fabrics have flooded the local markets, their vivid colours and cheap prices became ever more popular with the women and so their quilts ( made up from left over fabrics they used for their clothes) also became brighter ! These quilts are colourful ,exurberant, instinctive ,vibrant and exquistely assembled. Made with love !
