This Tribal One-Of-A-Kind Vintage YO-YO Quilt Throw Blanket is inspired by a 1930s-1940s YO-YO Quilt. This style of quilting uses small rosettes of fabric in place of traditional large-piece recycled patchworked quilting allowing women to work on their craft throughout the day without carrying around large amounts of fabric.


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 and sew them together using thread and needle. Each piece is sewn 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.
