Story Behind the Art
Originally from Persia, the technique of Qalamkari was introduced to the people of India by the Mugal. The artisans introduced refined techniques to the art including recycling or blending the best parts of older goods like saris, tunics and shawls with new materials to extend the life of the goods. The arid, dry climate of Rajasthan, India is ideal for the art. Since the introduction of the art by the Mugals, the Rajasthan love of qalamkari has resulted in the perfection of the technique and the practice of the art has flourished. There is a total of 750 artisans in 20 different villages working on these orders who have been able to improve their quality of life and income, to be able to send their kids to school and cover their health expenses.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

It's hard to get a sense of how a product feels online. Visually it's a nice piece -- we'll see how it washes and works with a baby.Read More
A beautiful cotton lap quilt. I will use it when watching movies on TV. The cleaning instructions are "dry clean only."Read More
I purchased this throw to add some color to a room but with the hope that I would also be able to use it as a throw. It really is much too small to cover anything other than your legs/feet. But I am draping it over the back of a wooden bench and it provides a nice accent while giving a little cushion. It is well made, the block print is quite attractive. It would make for a nice baby blanket.Read More
This is a lovely colourful quilt suitable for a baby's carriage, playmat on the floor, or a snugglie in their crib! I ordered it as a gift without realizing that it was 'baby sized.' However, I decided to keep it for myself to use on my couch. You will love the beautiful pattern and colours.Read More
This is so small, it is not a throw..it is a baby blanket. Will save for a grandchild or baby shower gift.Read More
It's my own fault that I didn't pay attention to the sizing. I thought it would be a full size quilt, but it's a tiny one. Very pretty, though, with nice colors. I decided to keep it and use it to cover my small (very small) drop table in the kitchen. Considering its size and the usual bargains on Overstock, it's overpriced.Read More

Popular Types of Quilts
Out of all the bedding made, quilts may be the most diverse. Quilts are produced in all kinds of colors, patterns, sizes, styles and types. If you're looking for a quilt but don't know where to start, take a look at the popular types of quilts below to learn more about this beautiful kind of bedding. Amish quilts: These beautiful quilts reflect the Amish way of living and feature solid colors, deep hues, geometric patterns and very little embellishment. Amish quilts contain the highest quality of construction and stitching, and, sometimes, the wonderful stitch patterns (scrolls, feathers) contrast with the simple backgrounds of their quilts. Applique quilts: These quilts use a French needlework technique where fabric pieces are sewn onto another piece of material to create a design. Applique is used extensively in the quilting process and is not to be confused with patchwork. Patchwork pieces are joined together; applique is sewn on top of the whole piece. Baltimore album quilts: Baltimore album quilts came from Maryland in the early 1800s. Each block in the design of these quilts is appliqued differently, often in ornate floral patterns. Bangladeshi quilts: These quilts are made with layers of Saree cloth. Saree cloth is silk cloth used by women of India to wrap and fold around the body as a garment. The cloth is usually 40 to 60 inches wide by 6 yards long. These quilts are used as bedding or as decorative pieces. Bargello quilts: Bargello quilts are created with offset squares in an up-and-down geometric "V" pattern. The small squares of different fabrics and the colorful designs make these quilts true works of art. Hawaiian quilts: Hawaiian quilts are not pieced, and they usually showcase a large, symmetrical applique in the center of the quilt. Most often the background is white or another solid color. Patchwork quilts: Patchwork quilts are constructed of many small pieces of fabric which are put together in an improvised or irregular pattern. This is a well-known quilt style, and examples of historical patchwork quilts are found in many museums. Ralli quilts: Ralli quilts, sometimes known as rilli quilts, are traditional quilts made in India or Pakistan. There is an abundance of embroidery as well as applique on the patchwork patterns. Star quilts: Star quilts are created with a large star shape, or several star shapes, dominating the pattern. Wedding ring quilts: Wedding ring quilts are crafted in a design of interlocking rings. This pattern goes far back in history: in the fourth century it was used to decorate drinking cups in Rome. Wedding ring quilts are highly popular and make wonderful wedding gifts. If you're looking for a gift to please an engaged couple, you can't go wrong with a wedding quilt. Bedding always makes a significant gift for the bride and groom, and a quilt with coordinating Egyptian cotton sheets can be even better. View All Quilts Back to Guides Directory View All Quilts
