ralli quilts are traditional quilts made by women in the areas of sindh, pakistan, western india, and in surrounding areas. the collection we currently have are specifically from pakistan and india. they are made from vintage fabric that is quilted together, combining pattern and color in bold contrast and then finished with fine stitching.
adorned with bright colors and bold patterns, the quilts are also called rilli, rilly, rallee or rehli derived from the local word ralanna meaning to “mix or connect”.
the quilts are just now gaining international recognition, even though women have been making these quilts for hundreds, maybe thousands of years. Eevery ralli quilt is different and unique. they tell a story of the creativity and love of color and design of the women who create them. in the villages, ralli is an important part of a girl’s dowry.
ralli quilts can be used as bedspreads, throws, rugs or wall hangings. each quilt varies in size. however they are roughly the size of a twin bed. keep in mind that patches or any imperfection is party of quilt's store and personality.
