Title Review

The handmade, lightweight, yet warm and soft, Jaipur quilt (or Jaipuri razai) holds a uniquely significant place among the many handcrafted objects that the Pink City is famed for. It is essentially the block-printed cotton fabric with exquisite designs, filled with as little as 250 gm of cotton-wool, which is then meticulously spread evenly and stitched in traditional patterns. A well-crafted book, Jaipur Quilts offers an in-depth look into the wonderfully creative world of the quilt-maker, touching upon the contributions of the block-printer and filler to the craftsman who stitches intricate patterns on these beautifully designed and lightweight quilts. The author also gives the reader a visual experience of the beauty of the quilts through a range of her exquisite photographs.

Krystyna Hellstrom, who studied Interior Design in Florence, Italy, and History of Art at Lund University, Sweden, has worked with Swedish Television and a renowned fashion house in Florence.
