About Book
Every winter as the mercury plummets to a new low each day in northern India, the demand for Rajasthani quilts - popularly known as the Jaipur Razai - is on the rise. It is a seasonal phenomenon and shops indulge in brisk trade. These quilts are handmade, lightweight yet warm and soft, coming in a wide variety of designs and colour tones, extensively using the traditional Indian colour palette and motifs. Meant for everyday use in winter and whose origins can be traced back to the caravan routes of nomadic tribes, Jaipur razais also serve as stylish pieces of traditional handicraft and art. Designing of quilts in India is a unique combination of experience, traditional values and interests. Quilts are fragments of history with stories to be documented and preserved.
