Product details

Patchwork Quilt (Kurak)

In early 20th-century Central Asia, fabric for patchwork textiles was rarely bought. Traditionally, pieces of fabric would be given out at important family events and celebrations - and the magical properties would be passed on from the giver to the receiver. It was also believed that patchwork and fabric scraps had protective powers to ward off evil spirits.

These quilts were traditionally sewn by hand until the early 20th century.
