Bedspread from Gujarat with Applique Elephants and Kantha Embroidery

Kantha is a kind of running stitch that is done by women in parts of India as a form of quilting. Today, fabric that features embroidery done using this stitch is also referred to as kantha. Such embroidered fabrics, which could be anything from sarees and cholies to bedspreads and other home decor, make for a very fashionable statement. This bedspread is a fine example of the kantha stitch. It is made from pure homegrown cotton that takes best to the densely packed stitches of this style. Contrary to the rough quilt-like finish associated with kantha, this bedspread comes with a finesse that speaks well of the artisans who made it.

Rural Gujarat is known for the quirky textiles it produces and its love for vibrant colours. Local artisans make it a habit to infuse the pastels one sees in the countryside into their fabrics, of which this bedspread is proof. The motif of the richly adorned elephant with its trunk raised has been arranged in repetitive panels across the field, which are interspersed with kantha embroidery. The elephants have been appliqued onto the base fabric, which gives away the degree of creative skill and labour that has gone into this bedspread. The dominant colour variations include black and red, from which you are welcome to choose depending on the tone you want to set your bedroom to.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
