Measures 5 ft 10 inches x 4 ft 5". Nice rust, green, mustard, black and white colour combination. A bit darker than it has come up in these pics.
Very collectible and unusual. From the Sindh province of Pakistan.

Subtle colours. Nice patterning. Very good condition. Bright and such fun. Backed with a green fabric. This item is quite a heavy quilt - hence the postage, sorry

Washable - I have just washed it on a normal 30 wash and it came up a treat. It is a mix of cotton and synthetic fibres, I think this was intended to make it washable.

The quilt has been constructed completely by hand. No evidence of machine sewing. It is in a very good condition. No flaws at all.

Ideal to throw over that wooden single bed. Unique.

This is a genuine Ralli quilt from the Sindh region of Pakistan, one of 4 regions. The Sindhus river of the ancients is now the Indus.


____________________________
A bit of background:

Quilters tend to think of quilts as our unique tradition. In truth, quilts have been made in Asia and Africa for centuries, a natural extension of using up scraps of valuable fabric or textiles.
Ralli quilts have only recently attracted notice to Western collectors. They are made by Sindhi women in Southern Pakistan as well as the surrounding regions. Most are narrow, single sized, useful for a covering a bed or as a wrap. They are also often used as door coverings in Pakistan and India. Ralli quilts vary in color and design, reflecting individual taste, skill and availability of materials. Most commonly, they are quilted in vertical rows from top to bottom and most have a thin layer of old fabric inside, instead of batting.

Ralli quilts are becoming highly collectible and fit well with many types of decor. On a wall, a bed, or draped on a rail, they have the freshness of folk art.

Sindhi Patchwork Quilt. Hand made. Greens. Nice patterns.
