The Gilli is a sweet gem, a simply lovely representation of Indian kantha. Front in sublime subtlety: pink and green motifs on a pale yellow (verging on chartreuse) background, complete with distinctive central panel running vertically through. A charmer, not too bold yet not subdued and full of countryside charm in both colour and design.
The reverse holds a panel of the same overall design from front, the rest a lively pattern in aqua and dark lavender. For those lovers of fun patchwork characteristic in kantha, this checks the box… but not overly so!
Dimensions: 160cm x 210cm
While machine washing in cold (line dry) is an option, dry cleaning is recommended
Our kantha are hand block printed (and occasionally hand screen printed) in Indian cotton. Given vintage fabrics are used, small imperfections and signs of wear may be found and are part of the charm.
