Anchal's Narrative Collection explores the connection between vernacular imagery, heritage artwork and a maker's journey to empowerment. The contemporary geometric design partnered with an aggregated stitch pattern revolutionizes traditional kantha quilting techniques. Kantha, a traditional India embroidery technique, is the process of joining multiple layers of vintage saris with a simple running stitch. Each design is captured in a photograph and translated into a quilt's compositional pattern, allowing variant stitch patterns to reveal the artisan's process & determination. This art takes patience, dedication and practice. A standard throw quilt takes an average of 2 weeks to stitch.
