This One-Of-A-Kind Postage Stamp Quilt Throw Blanket is inspired by an antique patchwork quilt, Circa 1930's. Containing mesmerising patterns and colours, the stamp quilt pattern is named due to the fact that no piece is larger than a postage stamp. Made up of thousands of tiny pieces of scrap fabric making it a one-off rare find to adorn your home. A true showstopper!


Practiced in the Sindh region, the arduous task of patterning involves about a dozen steps including pre-treating the fabric in organic compounds to absorb the natural dyes better. First, the women gather all the small and colourful pieces of discarded clothes, cut them into small squares or other irregular shapes and sew them together using thread and needle. Each piece is sewed together by hand and takes months to sew together just the middle piece. These unique, one-off, colourful creations of Rallis exhibit Sindhi women’s creativity and designing skills.

The Thow has multipurpose uses and can be used as bedspreads, sofa throws, beach blankets or as a wall hanging.

Dry Clean only.
