Osage + Indigo Quilt

375.00 495.00

This quilt was naturally dyed by hand with osage orange + indigo, and is inspired by the colors of the sunrise and the summertime.

Osage orange comes from the heartwood of the osage tree. The color is extracted from the wood chippings through a process of soaking the chips in water and boiling them. The yellow shades are achieved through dying cotton/linen in osage, the green shades are from dyeing the textile in osage and then over dyeing in indigo, and the blue shades are from dyeing the textile in my natural indigo vat.

This piece is entirely quilted by hand using cotton sashiko thread that has also been dyed in osage and indigo to match the blue, green, and yellow hues of the quilt. The back of the quilt is a wholecloth piece dyed in indigo, and the colors from the sashiko thread make a subtle spectrum of stitches across the back.

The quilt has natural cotton batting and is bound with an indigo dyed cotton linen. It is slightly stiff from the linen but will soften up with time and use. 

Size: approx 51 x 51

Professional cleaning is recommended to care for the quilt.
