Quilts were born out of necessity from the ingenuity of women taking scraps of fabrics and repurposing them to create something beautiful and new. They are a source for creative self expression—as each piece reflects the life and personal stories of the quiltmaker—historically practiced by women gathering together creating comradery and building community. Today, new markets have enabled quiltmakers to assert their economic rights and create new narratives of independence.
Anchal’s first product was the quilt. At the beginning, when our artisan’s skills were in their infancy, making quilts was a simple way for them to begin earning money without years of expertise.
Quilts, like our namesake, represent warmth and comfort. They are usable, functional and flexible. To this day the inspiration for every collection starts with the quilt and it remains the bedrock of our business.
