Sandrine.. I have adored the French name since I first heard it (but only when properly spoken by the French – don’t let it get obscured by ugly English pronunciation!). I thought it fitting to name this one Sandrine – dreamy, delicate, elegant with a touch of history. The layers showing through on the sky blue side of this quilt show the pre-loved wear which transforms into a one-of-a-kind artwork, never to be repeated. This kind of wear effect I refer to as “disintegration” – the top layer of saree has worn enough to show the layer underneath (that wouldn’t usually be revealed). Isn’t it wonderful?
Sandrine is butter soft – a rare quality only a few of my kanthas have held. She would fit in perfectly in a cottage setting or French countryside chateau, slung over an old chair ready to be used as a blanket or tablecloth.
