Studio Tolsta – Nila Mini Quilt


The Nila (Tamil for moon) Quilt was inspired by grill patterns found around the streets of Madras.

Made from airy handwoven cotton, the Nila quilt is soft and soothing to the eye. The back and binding have been naturally dyed with pomegranate skins, myrobalan galls and fermented jaggery. The front has been left un-dyed and unprocessed to retain the natural, creamy colour of cotton lint. This raw surface is then carefully hand block printed by a team of expert printers based here in South India.

The Nila quilt works well as a chair or sofa blanket, it can also be draped over the foot of a bed or used as a cosy baby blanket.
