Message from the maker:
I began Mata Quilts after spending a year living in Kutch, India where I was studying traditional crafts through a Fulbright grant. Inspired by this rural desert region’s incredible textiles, I wanted a way to use and share these beautiful fabrics while helping to support artisans to continue their crafts.
Beyond Mata Quilts, I’m a sculpture and installation artist. Textile and craft heritage play a big role in my work, so with a deep appreciation for the rich quilting traditions of the United States, I was excited to learn about quilting in the Indian context while living in Kutch. Mata Quilts is an experimental fusion of these traditions with an emphasis on environmental sustainability, using plant-based natural dyes, repurposed materials, and sustainably-sourced block print fabrics.
Currently, I make each of the quilts individually, but in the near future will be offering a line of quilts made in collaboration with women in rural Kutch to help keep these traditions alive and thriving.
